Prairie Dogs Return To Beacon Hill Wildlife Center in Kaufman County
Whooping Cranes late, still coming!
“The iconic, endangered whooping crane has embarked on its annual fall migration and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) is reminding Texans to expect these impressive birds to be moving through the state in the weeks ahead as they travel to wintering grounds along the Texas coast.
Standing at nearly five feet tall, whooping cranes are North America’s tallest bird and each year the flock follows a migratory path from nesting grounds in Woods Buffalo National Park in Alberta, Canada, to primary wintering range on and around the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge near Austwell, Texas. This trek takes the birds through North and Central Texas and traverses cities such as Wichita Falls, Fort Worth, Dallas, Waco, Austin and Victoria.”

Nature Preserve at Beacon Hill Provides New Habitat For Rare Prairie Dog Collection
Mark McDonald, Chief Wildlife Biologist at Beacon Hill on Cedar Creek Lake is proud to announce the arrival of a family of Prairie Dogs to the Community’s Nature Trail. “We are delighted how quickly the Prairie Dog families have adapted to our Nature Habitat. They have become a welcome addition to our Nature Trail and Birdwatching locations here on the shores of Cedar Creek Lake and we look forward to having our visitors enjoy watching them in action in their new (Town)” quotes McDonald.
From Josiah Gregg’s journal, Commerce of the Prairies: “Approaching a ‘village,’ the little dogs may be observed frisking about the ‘streets’—passing from dwelling to dwelling apparently on visits—sometimes a few clustered together as though in council—here feeding upon the tender herbage—there cleansing their ‘houses,’ or brushing the little hillock about the door—yet all quiet”.
