Thus us really a beautiful natural area with tons of wildlife. While not a birder it’s hard to not fall in love with the variety of wildlife. I was told that earlier in the tear it’s even more populated.

If you are a birder and visiting South Texas this place is a must do. The best national wildlife center I have visited. The trail is a self driving tour one way in the same way out with places to stop, view wildlife and take short walks. The water levels are closely monitored and adjusted to accommodate migrating birds. We saw 50 species of birds, two alligators and few people. Be sure to scan the QR code posted at the visitor center to fully experience the refuge. The narration is upbeat and informative. The bathrooms and visitor center were closed due to the current health crisis. However bird feeders were filled with seeds and park police monitored the grounds as well as folks maintaining the flora. Plenty of sheltered picnic tables were available. Trails were well marked and easily navigated. Bring insect repellent, water, cell phone and snacks. remember this is a carry in carry out wildlife refuge.

It was a cool, windy day for bird watching, so not the best conditions. We also had a difficult time finding where to go as there is not much signage, but the car loop is well maintained, easy to travel along and stop for photos and definitely worth a trip out. I believe on better weather days it would be a better than average trip. The information center is maned by volunteers with information about the site, however it is near the back of the refuge. It has bird feeders, clean restrooms, a great board walk along which you can see birds and alligators and a nice walking trail that has three loops of varying distances, depending on how much you want to hike/walk. We saw a good amount of small birds in this area.

The refuge is surrounded by landfills and oil refineries but once you get in there, the birds are incredible!
