Bird Watch at Olmos Basin 

The views in Olmos Basin Park (651 Devine Road) are some of the best in the city. The trees and open spaces make you feel lost in nature even though you're not far from great restaurants and top coffee shops. Some of the main attractions are the kick ass birds that populate the park. Give birding a try and start knocking species off your life list, even if they don't seem so exotic. Spot the beauty of Texas' state feathered friend, the Mockingbird. Embrace the peace motif of the White-winged Dove. There are cardinals and goldfinches and grackles galore. You might spot a Mallard waddling around or try to spy out a Cedar Waxwing. But if birds are a bore, check out Olmos Basin Park anyway because it is one of the most beautiful areas of the city.
