There are about 58 million birders in the United States alone, and this number continues to grow!
To begin birding, all you need are three items: Binoculars, a guide and a blank notebook. Having a friend that has more experience in birding can also be helpful.
But just as important, you need patience. Birding can be a challenging activity because birds are naturally skittish. However, the rewards are well worth it; few other activities can bring such a sense of wonder, satisfaction, connecting with nature, as well as peaceful solitude -- in today’s busy world.
Many birders come to see our Golden-cheeked Warbler 'Dendroica chrysoparia', a bird on the endangered species list, who only breeds in the Texas Hill Country - no other place on Earth.
Many birds have lost their habitat and their future is unkown.
Look at the list of the 10 most endangered birds
Golden-cheeked warblersnest only in central Texas mixed Ashe-juniper and oak woodlands in ravines and canyons. Warblers eat insects. They use long strips of juniper 'cedar' bark and spider webs to build their nests in March to raise their young, and leave in August/September to spend the winter in Central America. 360 bird species breed in Texas, but the Golden-cheeked Warbler is the only one that nests exclusively in Texas. Please feel welcome to visit Bear Springs Blossom Nature Preserve where 6 birding trails invite you to walk on guided tours for birders and Nature lovers. Learn to identify birds on 125 acre Nature Preserve in the Texas Hill Country.

The best time to see most birds is usually earlier in the morning - the evening is less productive unless you are looking for nocturnal species - such as
Whip-poor-will or whippoorwill, Caprimulgus vociferus
Size about 10 inches, a night-jar from North and Central America. The Whip-poor-will is commonly heard within its range, but less often seen.
The song you hear playing is an old Country song - part of the text is
.. hear that lonesome whip-poor-will ..
Also pay attention to the season. Spring and fall migrations are a great time to spot birds that fly long distances and stopover for a rest.
