If we had visited here before experiencing the Port Aransas Nature Preserve, we would probably have been quite content, but we were spoiled by the diversity of wildlife in Port Aransas. The SPI Convention Centre boardwalk was free, and we did enjoy seeing the gulls and terns splashing in the shallow waters. A statuesque great blue heron was probably my... 更多
The trail starts from the convention center. On this day, they had some sort of flea market of some sort (Sunday afternoon). Not sure if it's always this busy, as we went inside the convention center first to see what's this all about. They were charging $1 pp, so we decided it's not worth it as it's mostly just clothing.... 更多
We're not avid birders but we do enjoy seeing birds we've never seen before. This boardwalk was a treasure for us. We saw a reddish egret (new!), also common moorhens with their brightly colored beaks & feet. And all the usual birds... herons, egrets, multitudes of different ducks, white & regular pelicans. Great fun & FREE!!!

After our conference was over, we took a walk through this area. It was very beautiful. Our walk was in the afternoon, it was very beautiful to be able to look out over the bay and enjoy the view.

We enjoyed the walk here. We saw alot of birds that are common in the area. Some of the paths run parallel to ones from the birding center which is next door. This is free; the birding center is not.
This is right next to the Birding Center and is free for visitos, which also means that it is not well maintained. Fewer bird blinds and more overgrown marsh plants mean there are less opportunities for viewing. But you can choose to go early morning or late evening, increasing your chances for viewing birds.
