Salineno Texas

Salineno is a place that unless you are a bird watcher you've probably have never heard of it.
It is located a little ways before Falcon Dam if you coming from the Mission Area.

People go to Salineno for the Audubon's Oriole and the Hooded Oriole. They are also hoping to see a wild Muscovy Dick or a Brown Jay. We took our friends Bill and Cece to Salineno because if your are taking people who have never birdred before it's a great place. Some lawn chairs are set up right in front of the feeders and you can just sit and watch all the beauties come in to your heart's content.

Salineno has been a birding mecca since the seventies. It was given to the Valley Land Fund and is run by volunteers.

To get to Salineno from Mission, Texas, you go 83 west until about 5 miles give or take from Falcon Dam.

The road you want is Salineno road on the left. You drive down that road until you are at the river and you will see a sign for Valley Land Fund.
