LeonaBelleTurnbullFrom SH 361 at the ferry landing, take Cut-Off Road to Ross Avenue and follow the signs to the Leona Belle Turnbull Birding Center. This birding facility attracts birds and birders alike. The boardwalk stretches nearly a mile over the shallow, brackish water and allows for close observation of many birds. From the observation platform look for waterfowl (Black-bellied Whistling-Duck, Cinnamon Teal), grebes (Least included), heron and egrets, cormorants, shorebirds (such as Black-necked Stilt) and flaming pink Roseate Spoonbills, the Port Aransas city bird. The parking area and land along the boardwalk are planted in native species, so be alert for landbirds during migration. Keep your eyes open for the resident American alligators Boots and Bags! Guided tours take place every Wednesday at 9:00am. Free viewing scopes.
