Very nice, short hike to a canyon overlook
Stillhouse Hollow Nature Preserve - 4/22/2010  [View Log Page]
Rating: 4stars Difficulty: 1star Solitude: 4stars
Distance: 0.60 Mile Duration: 30 minutes
The habitat along this trail should contain golden-cheeked warblers, an endangered, beautiful species unique to the Texas Hill Country around Austin -- oaks on the canyon walls, plus lots of junipers on the flat section. The warblers use the shaggy bark of mature junipers to build their nests. The end of the trail with the canyon overlook is lovely and quiet, with water trickling far below, woodpeckers and jays calling overhead. Today we also heard migrating waterfowl calling to each other high overhead, but it was too cloudy to see what they were. I plan to go back some morning early and look and listen for warblers. Today we were there mid afternoon, a terrible time to bird-watch!
