Haslet, Texas is the most unique place in North Texas. Nestled away between Highway 35, a speedway, and distribution facilities is lush habitat for waterbirds and migratory birds in the form of ponds and large oak trees. I’ve seen several lifers (birds I have never seen before) at one pond a mile from my house including a Common Yellowthroat, Leconte's sparrow, Swamp Sparrow, and Marsh Wren.
I became a birder at Denton Creek. On my first Global Big Day I had counted 24 lifers. My favorite time visiting the creek is during the summer where I gaze at the Indigo, Painted Buntings, and White-eyed Vireos. I observed an increase in Yellow-rumped Warblers, Purple Finches, and White-throated Sparrows due to flooding earlier in 2019.
A great place to photograph shorebirds, waterbirds, blue birds, and hawks during the fall.
I work in a building complex nestled away in lush local tree canopies and ponds hosting Blue Herons, Little Blue Herons, Green Herons, Great and Snowy Egrets. Come early summer the area comes alive in vibrant colors from butterflies and well-maintained flowers. Hall Park hosts migratory birds fall and winter.
