The Trinity Bird Count is an exciting new effort to count every bird species in and along our Trinity River in Dallas! Birds are among the most beautiful and intriguing visitors and residents of the forests, grasslands, river banks and neighborhoods along the Trinity River.
This year, the Trinity Commons Foundation begins an exciting new project to learn about the Trinity's birds – the Trinity Bird Count. With 636 of the 957 bird species in North America, Texas is for the birds! Come enjoy the Trinity and help investigate the birds that live along the Trinity or that visit here during their migration.
