Chasing Rare & Endangered Ones

Endangered Ones Trip

This tour will span the refuge in search of its rare and endangered songbirds. Experts on the species will take you to shady, relatively moist woodlands of oak and juniper to listen and look for Golden-cheeked Warblers. At the other end of the refuge, we will listen for the raspy songs of Black-capped Vireos in and around thickets of scrubby oaks, sumacs, and greenbriars. Along the way we hope to spot other Hill Country birds.

Targets: Golden-cheeked Warbler, Black-capped Vireo

The Balcones Canyonlands Preserve (BCP) is a system of preserves in western Travis County, Texas, established to protect habitat for eight endangered species – two neotropical migratory songbirds and six karst invertebrates – and another 27 species of concern that could merit listing in the future under the Endangered Species Act. Encompassing more than 31,000 acres of juniper-oak forest and limestone caves owned by several partner organizations, the BCP includes some of Austin’s favorite wild places, such as Emma Long Park, the Barton Creek Greenbelt, Mount Bonnell, and Hamilton Pool. Established in 1996 through a regional 10(a) permit issued by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to the City of Austin and Travis County, the BCP provides both ecological and economic benefit by mitigating the detrimental effects of development.
