BIRDING IN BASTROP

Have you heard? Bird is officially the word in Bastrop, TX! Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Audubon Texas has designated the City of Bastrop as a Bird City Texas certified community through 2022. Did you know? we're home to 277 different species of birds and located along the prolific route that millions of birds take on their way to South America and back during their biannual migration? These are just a few of the reasons Bastrop is a prime location for birdwatchers in the Lone Star State.
