Meet count leader Jason Bonilla in the parking lot of Woodland Park. Please note that the park does not have a maintained trail system. As such, there is a lot of poison ivy that is somewhat unavoidable when walking the park and looking for birds. Additionally, there are terrain changes and unstable areas. Participants should wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. We meet on the third Saturday of the month.

Background Information: (by Jason Bonilla) Woodland Park, located a few miles from downtown in Woodland Heights, is an excellent park for urban birding. The Friends of Woodland Park and members of Houston Audubon get together monthly for a 2-hour bird walk from 7:30 to 9:30 AM. We have seen lots of great birds during every season over the past few years, including nice spring migrants. Several exotic species have also been seen at the park, including Red-vented Bulbuls, Nutmeg Mannikins, and Orange-cheeked Waxbills. Anyone is welcome to join us as we explore one of Houston's oldest parks.

Leader: Jason Bonilla (jason.bonilla@gmail.com)

Park Address: 212 Parkview, Houston, 77009

Latest Report: September 16

We had our September bird count this morning with 17 species. We had good looks at Green Herons and a brief glimpse of what I believe was the underside of a Wilson's Warbler. Our next bird survey will be on Saturday, October 21st at 7:30 am.
