KPC’s Holiday Hike @ Indiangrass Preserve

Stretch your legs and breathe some fresh prairie air as we take a short stroll through Indiangrass Preserve to look for signs of bird life on the prairie.

This tour will be led by KPC’s Community Conservation Director, Jaime Gonzalez.

We are likely to spot some of the many waterfowl, wading, and grassland birds that call the Katy Prairie their winter home.

Christmas Bird Count on Buffalo Bayou @ Houston Audubon's Edith L. Moore Sanctuary
Dec 31 all-day

This is one of the few CBCs that is set almost entirely in an urban environment. The count circle does contain a few areas of undeveloped land that usually hold a few surprises since they are surround by development. It is possible to see up to 15 species of sparrows on this count, including the elusive Henslow’s and Grasshopper Sparrows. Other “Special Birds” seen over the past several years have been: Hooded Merganser, American Bittern, Solitary Sandpiper, American Woodcock, Common Ground-Dove, Black Phoebe, Couch’s Kingbird, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Spotted Towhee, Eastern Towhee, Rusty Blackbird, Purple Finch and Pine Siskin.There are two ways to participate: (1) Be a Field Observer – Join one of the teams in the field. (2) Be a Feeder/Yard Watcher – Because so much of the Buffalo Bayou CBC area is residential, Feeder Watchers (those who stay at home and observe their feeder, yard and/or neighborhood) are extremely important to the count and greatly increase the efficiency of the count by observing species that otherwise would not be seen, such as hummingbirds.

2017 Christmas Bird Count @ Houston Arboretum & Nature Center
Dec 31 @ 6:00 am – 12:00 pm

Every winter, tens of thousands of volunteers across North America wake up at the crack of dawn and brave winter weather just to get a headcount of local birds. The Christmas Bird Count is a 118 year old tradition and the longest running citizen scientist project in the world. The count, run by the National Audubon Society, helps biologists study the long-term health and well-being of bird species across the continent.
Join us for this year’s Buffalo Bayou (west Houston) Count on Sunday, December 31. The count starts at 6 am, but we’ll head back to the building at 9 am so late risers can join in on the fun. No experience necessary, but preregistration is required.

Register for the 2017 Christmas Bird Count

Schedule: Bring your own snacks, camera, notebook, weather-appropriate clothing, binoculars if you have them (we’ll have some available to borrow), and money for lunch. At 6:15 am we’ll head straight to the Meadow, then split up to cover the trails. We’ll meet back at the building at 9:00 am for a coffee break. We’ll split up again to cover any remaining trails, then meet back at the building at noon. Afterwards, we’ll head to an optional lunch at Beck’s Prime in Memorial Park to compile our results.
