More Birding Fun-Great Backyard Bird Count at CRDI on February 15

Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center is hosting The Great Backyard Bird Count on February 15.  This annual four day event engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are.

Everyone is welcome, from beginning bird watchers to experts.  It's free, fun, and easy--and it helps the birds.  Join the fun at the Nature Center (4 miles south of Fort Davis on Hwy 118) at 8:30 am to participate in the bird count!

The full event listing on our Texas Mountain Trail regional event calendar, HERE.

CDRI is on the Far West Texas Wildlife Trail map, a project of our Texas Mountain Trail non-profit and TPWD.  Below is the entry for CDRI on the map:

"The center sits on 507 acres in the foothills of the Davis Mountains. The botanical gardens, a protected canyon with perennial springs, grasslands with mixed desert scrub, and seasonal tanks provide several habitat zones for birds and bird watching. Hummingbird feeders are maintained around the center and primarily attract Black-chinned, but Rufous, Broad-tailed and maybe the occasional Calliope can be seen in the fall. The center offers many nature programs to the public and maintains hiking trails on the center’s property."
