Installing a palace for birds is just one way to enjoy natural wonders in the Central Texas Hill Country. This beautiful birdhouse was found a few years ago at Wimberley Market Days, but check the links below for all kinds of DIY options and ways to build the right birdhouse for your feathered tenants.

Of course, the first step in building a birdhouse for your garden, lawn, or patio is getting to know your avian visitors. At the end of this article is a partial list of birds who may be flying through the Texas skies and making their homes in Wimberley, Texas. Spring and Fall Central Texas Flyway migrations bring even more interesting visitors. For more birding information, click here.
