Archbishop Fiorenza Park Bird Survey

Next Survey: currently on hold

Do you live on the west side of Houston and are you looking for a fantastic place to see an amazing array of birds? Well join us on the fourth Wednesday of each month at Archbishop Fiorenza Park (Phase 2) between Eldridge and Highway 6 for the chance to see a multitude of species, get a good healthy walk in and enjoy the company of other outdoor loving folks. This park has miles of paved trails, wooded thickets, open grassy areas, large detention ponds with bird islands and much more. It is north of the Westpark Tollway and just north of the original Archbishop Fiorenza Park on Eldridge.

Email Mary Anne Weber at if you'd like to participate.

Latest Report: November 27, 2019

Thanks to everyone who came out for this beautiful morning at Fiorenza! The Wood Stork was a special surprise. Pipits and Yellow-rumped Warblers have arrived for the winter. Shovelers, teal and pelicans were prominent. The next survey is being moved to December 24 at 7:30 AM. Hope to see everyone on Christmas Eve. The link to my photos below includes a visit to Bear Creek Park after the survey where I found lots of Black Vultures having a meeting of sorts.
