Spotting birds in parking lots
Friday, June 3, 2022 by Tai Moses
It’s a new month, and that means it’s almost time for a new Wild Neighbors webinar. In a talk titled “Parking Lot Birding,” Jennifer Bristol, former director of the Texas Children in Nature program of TPWD, will describe the birds one is most likely to see in urban areas, focusing on the purple martin, which is a truly fascinating and charismatic swallow. Formerly a park ranger, Bristol has also served on the advisory boards of the Texas Wildlife Association and Travis Audubon, and in 2018 and 2019, snagged the Most Valuable Birder award in the Great Texas Birding Classic. So if she tells you to look for birds in parking lots, do it. Friday, June 24, noon-1 p.m. Register here.
