Monthly Bird Count – August 2016

Every month Jason Bonilla, from the Houston Audubon Society, leads a group through Woodland Park and records the species and number of the birds they observe. If you'd like to join us for our hikes through the park please visit our calendar to find the next date and time.

Here's Jason's wrap-up (slightly edited) followed by the monthly bird count. Our next birding adventure is September 10th. Hope to see you there!
