Texas Birding

Texas Birding on RVweekends.com

Studying habitats, food preferences, and migration patterns of birds is fascinating. We become more obsessed with birding as we identify each new species. It is entertainment you can take with you everywhere you go.

We hope you enjoy browsing our collection of bird photos as much as we do. :-)

Attracting Birds to your Backyard

I have built several bird houses to provide habitat in my back yard, and have a sort of feeding area with a squirrel proof bird feeder, suet, and bird baths.
