Bastrop County sits along the Central Flyway -- the largest and most prolific migratory bird route, taking birds to South America and back again during their twice-annual migration. Migratory birds include Black-Chinned and Ruby Throated Hummingbirds, Little Blue Heron, Painted Bunting and Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher. In January 2020, Bastrop was certified as an official bird city by Texas Parks and Wildlife.
