High Island Rookery

One of my favorite birding spots is the High Island Rookery.  Late in the day, after walking a considerable amount and often in the hot sun, this is the place to be.  A shaded path dotted with several observation decks provides a place to sit comfortably.  There is plenty of wildlife to observe.  Over time one can see quite a lot.  Bullfrogs abound and alligators sun in wait.  Many species of birds inhabit the rookery. Yet, there are more who visit.  It’s a grand place during migration in the spring. 

Texas has good birding all year round and almost anywhere in the state.  However, a trip to the Upper Texas Coast in spring can be something special.
