Season: All Seasons

Fee charged. Both the Callahan and South Shore units of this park offer exemplary birding opportunities. In the Callahan unit, look for Wild Turkey around the campsites, Bellís Vireo nesting in the brush in summer, and Audubonís and Bullockís orioles in the mesquite. Pauraque may be heard at dawn and dusk, and Olive Sparrows abound in the thickets. Look for nesting Cave Swallows in summer under the eaves of the picnic shelters, and Vermilion Flycatcher perched around the lake. A variety of hummingbirds have been seen here in winter around flowering tree tobacco (including Annaís).
