Birding in Big Bend National Park

Birding in the mountain woodlands of the Chisos Basin
Big Bend National Park offers spectacular birding anytime of the year.  The diversity of the landscape--river, desert, mountain woodlands--provides a home for 450 species of birds, more than any other national park.  Want to find some great locations for birding?  Check out the Big Bend loop on the Far West Texas Wildlife Trail--a joint project of Texas Mountain Trail and Texas Parks and Wildlife. 

Here's a link to the Big Bend loop, with 12 sites for birding and wildlife watching.  Site 42 is pictured above, and site 44 is below.
