The X Bar Ranch would like to thank Cliff Shackelford and Linda
Campbell, both with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, for their help in starting the ranch bird list and to all 
others who have contributed to it.

The list is a work in progress and is added to periodically. All suggestions
and comments from previous groups have helped us immensely in preparing for the enjoyment of future birders and groups. Your input is also welcome.

Copies of the Field Checklist of Birds for the Concho

Trails have been established for the enjoyment of hikers and birders, additionally there is a wildlife viewing area at the pond near the lodge, the native flower gardens, fountains and feeders just off the back
