Bee Creek Park is best birded in the spring, when migrants fill the trees in the morning.  Nearby Lemontree Park connects across Southwest Parkway and is also good in the spring. The best birding areas are the forested areas, using the dirt trails in the arboretum and walking along the edges of the rest of the trees.  There are sidewalks that can give good views as well.

Give recommendations for making your visit as productive as possible.
This may include for instance:
• best season
• best time of the day
• how much time to spend at the site
• best means of locomotion within the site
• recommended routes / areas within the site
• guiding

If you park near the baseball fields during a game, you risk a home run flying through your windshield.  Generally, if there is a game, do not bird here, as it is too loud.  The very occasional crime makes this a place I would not bird alone at night.  Poison Ivy, mosquitoes, and possibly a snake or two should be watched out for.
