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 maweber@houstonaudubon.org if you'd like to participate.

Latest Report: June 28

The breeze helped to keep the oppressive heat to a medium simmer on Wednesday for the June Fiorenza Survey. The park didn't disappoint with great views of a Bald Eagle, Swainson's Hawk, low flying Chimney Swifts, high flying martins and lots of egrets and herons. Nine summering American White Pelicans remain at the park. Water levels were high so no sandpipers or even killdeer were seen or heard. The McClendon rookery is still exploding with chicks of all ages. Be sure to join us in July for more heat and birding adventures at the park.
