Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center
This is one of the best sites in Port Aransas. Turn west on TX 361 where that highway leaves Alister St. at the stoplight. Follow signs to the parking lot. The entrance path goes by a cattail marsh and a few trees which can harbor migrants in spring. The path leads to a boardwalk over a large freshwater pond with an observation tower. Ducks, Least Bittern, Roseate Spoonbill, egrets, hawks, shorebirds, gallinules, rails and two alligators. Guided bird walks on Wednesdays at 9:00 am. The ducks and wading birds are quite tame and offer great opportunities for photographers.
