The best birding on a very cold morning could happen in bird blinds where you’re sheltered from the chilly weather and get a great view of the birds. That’s exactly what happened when we went to the bird blinds at Pedernales Falls State Park. We saw a lot of species just by staying there for a few hours. Hubby and I usually refer to it as “bird TV”. Of course we walked on a couple of trails but there were just a few birds who braved the cold weather while we were out. We did have a good exercise going up the hill on our way back to the parking area.
