Many THANKS to all who attended and all the dedicated volunteers who make this possible!



  Listening to a Blue-Headed Vireo on Cow Road with Byron Stone's group, seeing a group of Cave Swallows punctuated by a surprise flock of White-faced Ibis flying over with Chuck Sexton's group after capturing a picture of a GC Warbler and learning to get more out of photographing birds with Karen Kilfeather, all of these were very special experience. Wonderful.

 The staff of the Balcones NWR are among the finest people I know. Everything they do is first rate. They are outstanding, experts, and a joy to know. Keep up the great work.

 This was one fantastic event for me. The Raptor Show was spectacular and so was the Endangered Ones with Chuck Sexton. People and Staff were friendly and outgoing. Everything was done very professionally. I will be sure to attend future events and continue to support Friends of Balcones. Thank you all so much!

 I feel so lucky to have been in town at the right time for the Songbird Festival. Just want to thank all the volunteers who put on the event. I know it takes a huge effort!
Thank you,
Todd from WA State
