Season: Migration

scottholt purple gallinule005From SH 361 at the ferry landing, take a right on to Cut Off Rd. and turn right when you see the sign. Set on two acres surrounded by giant Black Willows and native prairie, Paradise Pond is the only freshwater wetland on Mustang Island. A 'secret hot spot' that fills with colorful songbirds each spring and fall, more than 100 species of Neartic-Neotropical migratory birds have been observed in this little oasis. Birds seen include Swainson's, Golden-winged, Chesnut-sided, Worm-eating and Cerulean Warblers, Northern Waterthrush, Yellow-billed Cuckoo and so on. Don't forget to check the chalkboard at the entrance to the boardwalk: the day's sightings are often noted.
