Season: Winter, Migration
From Port Aransas, a right at the intersection of SH 361 S and PR 22 takes you toward Corpus Christi. After a short distance turn right into Packery Channel County Park. The park offers another view of Packery Channel, and the birds normally associated with the "bocas" are present here. As you enter the park, however, notice the oak mottes to your right among the private houses. These woods attract landbirds in migration and birders from Corpus Christi consider this to be one of their most fruitful spots in spring. Walk along the public roads (do not trespass) and examine the trees for migrants. A number of rarities have been discovered here in the past, including Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher, Gray Kingbird and Black-whiskered Vireo.
