Spring migration is underway and Nueces County, where Port Aransas is located, is one of the most birdrich locations in the U.S., according to the Audubon Society. A migratory flyway passes through Port Aransas where part of the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail is located.
Five birding sites are located here on the trail that ties together birding sites from Beaumont to Brownsville.
The birding sites in Port Aransas are where you can find the many species that are both full-time residents or those passing through during spring migration.
Birders from far and wide visit Port Aransas to view the numerous species of birds.
A South Jetty photographer recently visited birding sites and Port Aransas neighborhoods to photograph some of the migratory birds that can be seen this time of year.
