Immersed in nature

Roughy 800 of the 940 acres at Canyon of the Eagles are a nature preserve that is home to a variety of wildlife, including two threatened or endangered species of birds.  Canyon of the Eagles takes its name from the American Bald Eagle that nests within the surrounding area from November through March each year.  The park provides a home for the endangered Black-Capped Vireo and Golden-Cheeked Warbler and is dedicated to showcasing the flora and fauna of Lake Buchanan.  Its not unusual to sight a bobcat, rabbit, snake, deer, roadrunner, or armadillo.  Wildflowers are abundant throughout the spring and early summer.
