Neighborhood Bird Guide

Click above for a guide to the common and some not-so-common birds in our immediate area -
at our feeders, in our yards, and in the air.
There are seed eaters, insect eaters, road-kill eaters,
and even hawks that specialize in catching birds.

Castlewood Forest and Oak Valley together comprise a quiet neighborhood where people enjoy walking the tree-lined streets.

The Castlewood-Oak Valley Neighborhood Association (COVNA) is dedicated to preserving the quality of our neighborhoods.  COVNA is active in area growth issues, crime prevention, traffic problems, environmental concerns, neighborhood conditions, and other community matters.

Help preserve the neighborhood we all enjoy by becoming involved in COVNA.  You can do your part by joining and attending meetings to actively shape the future of this area of Austin we call home.  Please follow the links to find out how to become engaged in your neighborhood association.
