Because of its location on the Central Flyway migratory route, Texas is home to over 600 bird species, and San Antonio is positioned as the gateway to birding in South Texas. The San Antonio Botanical Garden now has a Bird Watch for visitors to enjoy up close and personal encounters with migrating and resident birds. The Bird Watch is constructed of wood and large panels of glass. Near the structure sits a rain-collecting cistern. Water drips down into a shallow trough located in front of the viewing area, attracting birds looking for a long cool sip or a refreshing splash.
