Downy WoodpeckersCollin County is rich with opportunities to observe birds. The Heard Sanctuary is host to more then 200 species during the year. Some are year-round residents. Some nest during spring and summer. Some winter in our (relatively) warm climate. And others merely stop for a few days during spring and fall migration.
