Birding and trails go hand in hand, and is a great outdoor activity for social distancing. Dallas is recognized as a "Bird City Texas" by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Audubon. With a wide variety of trail types and different habitat types found throughout the city, you never know exactly what you will find. So download a bird field guide app on your phone, grab some water, and your binoculars, and head out to one of Dallas' scenic trails.
While out on your birding adventure, please consider recording your observations in the eBird or iNaturalist apps on your smart device. These observations help natural resource managers monitor for species diversity and unique species showing up in the area. In iNaturalist, community scientists have recorded over 280 species of birds in Dallas. Remember, take photos but do your best to not disturb the birds. October and November are some of our best months to get out and see some really beautiful birds and trails!
Here are some top picks of trails from around Dallas to check out for birding:
