If you love bird watching, you will love Lake Buchanan in the Texas Hill Country. Out of 900 bird species found in the United States, 600 can be found in the state of Texas. Many interesting birds migrate through the Highland Lakes Area and others spend the winter here. One visiting couple spotted 27 species of birds in an outing one morning and spotted over 40 species during their weekend stay.

Winters main attraction is dominated by a colony of American Bald Eagles that migrate to the Texas Colorado River Canyon and Lake Buchanan. Along with the awesome scenery on our Scenic Cruises or Lake Cruises, guests are granted the opportunity of possible sightings of these majestic birds, the symbol of our country, soar through a crisp cloudless blue sky and witness sights not soon forgotten.

Guests may also catch a glimpse of any of the following birds types: Scissor-tailed Flychatcher, Owls, Crows, Hawks, Great Blue Herons, Mallards and other ducks, gulls, roadrunners, painted Buntings, Robins, and wild Turkeys, just to name a few.

Even rainy days can offer spectacular views of this beautiful bird sitting majestically on their treetop perches. Winter weather is no burden as the fully enclosed heated cabin provides plenty of warmth with steaming refreshments available.
