Aransas National Wildlife Refuge
If you visit Aransas NWR in April or May just after a norther blows through, you might witness a songbird fall out with over 33 species. Aransas NWR hosts the largest flock of wintering whooping cranes in North America from late October to mid April. You're invited to take the auto tour, walk the trails, stop by our Visitor Center, walk up the observation tower, wander along a boardwalk through a marsh and relax overlooking San Antonio Bay.
Located In North Bay
Aransas Pass, Ingleside and Portland are the communities that comprise the North Bay. These cities offer plenty of birding, fishing, boating, sailing, swimming, and kite surfing opportunities.
