Birds and Birding in and near Llano Texas

Of particular interest in Llano County is the annual winter migration of the Bald Eagle.  Nine miles north of Llano on Highway 29 a family of Bald Eagles can be viewed from the roadside during the nesting season.

Due to the diversity of habitat, more than 620 species of birds call Texas home -- a claim no other state in the U.S. can match.  For birders hoping to catch a glimpse of two endangered birds, the Golden-cheeked Warbler and the Black-capped Viero, a visit to the Hill Country is the destination.  Other remarkable species in the area are the colorful Painted Bunting, Golden-fronted Woodpeckers, Rufous-crowned Sparrow and the Greater Roadrunner.
