Bushes and birds are no longer on the island
Dec 2020
My husband and I enjoyed watching the birds in the Connie Hagar Wildlife Sanctuary many times over the past 20 years. This was our first trip back to Rockport since Hurricane Harvey. The bushes that once cover the island in the middle of the Sanctuary were gone and so were the birds. No more Rosette spoonbills, Snowy Egrets, Pelicans and Great Blue Herons. Little Bay’s water was still very blue. The Connie Hagar Wildlife Sanctuary runs along the entire distance on Broadway Street along Little Bay. I am sure the birds will return when the bushes grow back.

good and short
Feb 2019 • Couples
We arrived here after a substantial rain fall and found the trail open 95%. The trail winds through live twisted oaks and is a natural pathway. Expect to see birds and find adequate seating for watching and resting. /The trail is not long, approximately ten to twenty minutes to walk, but intimate and interesting.

Surprising little birding spot in town
Jan 2019 • Solo
I stepped into the sanctuary not knowing what to expect, and immediately heard some birds singing - saw a few flying about, then a beautiful cardinal. Came upon a small marsh, and saw a trio of juvenile white ibis. Very satisfying.

Plenty of place to park along. Pull off and the birds are everywhere. Just follow the road around. There is a dead end kinda place with a plaque about Connie and plenty of parking with good birding, You'll love it.

After Harvey Report

The people of Rockport are amazing. They have gathered in this area and taken debris from the bay and continue to do so. this city is coming back strong for a tough time.

Heron antics

A small wood, in the middle of downtown Rockport, where Great Gray Herons nest and breed. A wonderful sight (at the right time of the year) with the bay on the other side of the road.

This sanctuary is right on the main road into Fulton Beach. It is nothing more than some pulloffs on the main road. There no amenities of any sort and people are looking out over the water while driving so you have to be careful not to get run over. People are wading or fishing and the view across the water is of some condos and summer houses on Key Allegro. Bird sightings are minimal given the activity.

Birds!
Feb 2017 • Family
Great spot to see a number of bird species, especially the herons on top of the mangroves. Loved the sun setting from here as well. We also saw dolphins in the salt water pool.

marvelous coastal birding
Sep 2016 • Couples
As birders, whenever we are in Rockport, we visit the Connie Hagar Wildlife Sanctuary, named after the woman who put Rockport/Fulton on the birding map as a hotspot for coastal birding. Especially during migration, the sanctuary is teeming with passerines that drop in exhausted. During the winter, many northern birds stay here. Excellent for children.
