At a Glance

Roseate Spoonbills, Northern Harriers, Tricolor Herons, Cormorants, Brown Pelicans and Pied-billed Grebes — just a few of the usual inhabitants of the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center in Port Aransas on Mustang Island. On this active birding program, head out into open gulf beach, protected bays, salt flats, mud flats, prairies, freshwater ponds and brackish estuarine areas in search of many of the more than 400 species of birds spotted here throughout the year. See why Port Aransas was deemed the country’s “birdiest small coastal city” of 2012.
