Birders celebrate 60 years at Hornsby Bend

Thursday, November 21, 2019 by Tai Moses

An incredible variety of bird life inhabits the lakes and meadows of the Hornsby Bend water treatment plant. According to the city, “more species have been found at Hornsby Bend than at any park in Austin.” To celebrate six decades of bountiful birding at the facility, Travis Audubon and Austin Water – with help from Eldorado Cafe, Land Sea & Sky Co. and the Sierra Club – are hosting a day of festivities on Saturday, Nov. 23, that includes a daylong bird survey, guided birding walks, information tables and activities in the Austin Water Center for Environmental Research. The evening program starts at 4 p.m. and includes dinner and a photography presentation by Greg Lasley. See the full schedule of events and the location.
