Purple Martin Roost at Highland Mall

Repeats every week until Sat Jul 28 2012.
Saturday, July 14, 2012 - 8:00pm to 9:00pm

Every summer in mid-to-late July an amazing natural phenomenon occurs at a very unlikely location. For some unknown reason, thousands of Purple Martins come together and roost in the three live oak trees in the parking lot of Wells Fargo Bank on the north side of Highland Mall. Watching them gather and then roost for the night is spectacular.

Even non-birders will be entertained by the show, so bring your friends and neighbors and join us for an evening of urban birding and socializing with birding friends. Lawn chairs and binoculars are optional. We’ll be watching from the Highland Mall parking lot across from Wells Fargo at 300 E Highland Mall Blvd on Friday and Saturday nights for three weekends in July.

Registration is not required. For more information, contact Shelia Hargis at [email protected] or 512-294-0272. http://travisaudubon.org/get-outdoors/field-trips/purple-martin-roost-at-highland-mall
