good, identifying pictures for the uninformed. Lots of shore/marsh birds, several kinds of ducks, even alligators (but not too close)

If you are a birder you will love it. Muskrat family in love and a 18-20' alligator. Wow!! Beautiful and large selection of birds. Seabirds ofcourse and winter migratory too. Take a binocular and camera.

I have lived in the area most of my life, and only recently discovered this gem once I picked up a birding habit. I had no idea that so many great little birding spots existed in Port Aransas.

Make certain to ask for directions to the bird sanctuaries which are hidden behind the Take-out Mexican restaurant, and the garbage facility.

Site is off Cutoff then Ross, next to water treatment facility. Roseates galore but the big old gator grabbed everyone's attention. Good place to meet other birders as source of advice for other sites.

Small but well worth seeing if you are interested in water birds plus warblers in the spring. At the landscaped entrance is a grove of trees that was full of small birds--three kinds of warblers when we were there. The boardwalk leads to a sheltered piece of water that is filled with ducks of many kinds, giving you a real... More

A must-see for anyone remotely interested in birds. Always a great variety of waterfowl and other birds in season. Boardwalk and observation tower allow for close views, and good photography. Thanks to the town and its co-sponsors, together with the volunteers, for this and the many other free and excellent birding spots in Port A.
