During my time in Texas, I spent most of one day birding at Estero Llano Grande State Park. For many birders that visit the valley, this is the highlight of the trip. Almost all of the specialties are possible as well as many species of waterbirds due to the extensive lake/marsh habitat. My favorite area of the park is the tropical zone which is a heavily wooded in most areas and usually holds a few uncommon birds. The visitor center (which you have to pay at) is also a nice spot to scan one of the marshes that is usually very good.

Pretty much, it is a great place to bird, with something new around every corner.
