Lake Livingston State Park Professional Review and Guide
"The 635-acre state park is primarily a recreation area used by Houston residents and local communities. The park’s 2.5 miles of shoreline provide an excellent base for fishing, boating, and swimming. Picnicking, bicycling, horseback riding, and wildlife observation and photography are also encouraged. The 84,000-acre reservoir, a project of the Trinity River Authority, is especially busy on weekends and holidays.
Key birds: Wood Duck, Pileated Woodpecker, and Brown-headed Nuthatch are present year-round. American White Pelican, Chuckwill’s-widow, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, and Painted Bunting occur in summer. Osprey, Bald Eagle, and LeConte’s Sparrow can usually be found in winter. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, a detailed map, and helpful general information."
