Our 9 Favorite Texas Hill Country Birds

  1. Golden-cheeked Warbler: This is one of the most special birds to find because they only live in Texas. 
  2. Black-capped Vireo: Thanks to the hard work from conservation efforts, these birds were taken off the federal endangered species list in 2018. 
  3. Scissor-tailed Flycatchers: These stunning gray and pink birds are a lovely sight to see in the Texas Hill Country. 
  4. Canyon Towhee: These birds were once considered the same species as California Towhee. However, Mitochondrial DNA evidence proved they were different species. 
  5. Painted Bunting: These colorful beauties are some of the most beautiful birds in the Texas Hill Country. 
  6. Vermilion Flycatcher: The male birds of this species will court the females by bringing them gifts such as butterflies and other flashy insects.
  7. Golden-fronted Woodpecker: During the summer, you can find these birds with purple-stained faces from eating prickly pear cactus fruit.
  8. Green Kingfisher: This stunning emerald green and rust-red beauty is a sight to behold. 
  9. Golden-cheeked Warbler: These birds only nest in Texas, so you definitely want to be on the lookout for them during your vacation.
