Because of diverse forests, available water and ready food sources, Nacogdoches is a birding paradise. Bird watchers from across the state and nation are discovering the area as a treasure trove of birdlife. Local trails, gardens and waterways provide ready access to wildlife and the moderate climate makes viewing a year-round activity.

Favorite sightings, exclusive to this region of the state, are the Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Brown-headed Nuthatch and Bachman's Sparrow. To learn more visit, Pineywoods Audubon Society.
