Why Birds Matter: 5 Actions for Bird Conservation

Central Texas Bird Watching Series Presented by the Travis Audubon Society

Spring is just around the corner! Make the most of the beautiful weather by learning how to find & attract local bird species. Discover the best spots in Austin for birdwatching, how to plant a garden that will bring birds right to your doorstep, and how to protect our local birds for the enjoyment of future generations. Make your yard come alive with bird song and activity. Learn about our expected backyard species and how to attract them using native plants, feeders, nestboxes and water features.

Speaker: Jeff Mundy. In this wide-ranging talk Jeff will discuss bird conservation issues. Do birds matter? Why are migratory birds protected? What are Christmas Bird Counts and Breeding Bird Surveys telling us about bird populations? What threats do birds face? And, what can the average citizen do to ensure our grandchildren will have a diversity of bird species to enjoy?

Jeff Mundy is a board certified trial lawyer specializing in personal injury and commercial litigation in Austin, Texas, with over twenty-five years of experience. He also uses his skills to support environmental litigation in his home state of Texas, most recently successfully seeking enforcement of the Endangered Species Act to protect Whooping Cranes in Texas. Jeff is a graduate of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). He also has served as president of the Houston Audubon Society, as well as the boards of directors of the Houston Audubon Society, Travis Audubon Society, and Texas Audubon Society. The Houston Audubon Society named a bird sanctuary, Mundy Marsh, on the Texas coast in honor of Jeff for his years of conservation work in Texas. Most recently, Jeff was invited to join the board of directors for the World Land Trust-US to help with their efforts to save rain forests globally.

    So sorry I missed this. I didn't plan it this way, but I wound up with two hungry dogs and groceries in the car, so I had to get home. I'd love to use this information to improve habitat for wild songbirds throughout the Walnut Creek watershed—which includes Wells Branch. Anyone interested?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
