Port Aransas has some wonderful areas for birding. We went to the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center today. Great area with loads of flowers, birds, nice walkway, and 500 ft. boardwalk across the wetlands. Hummingbirds, Herons, and a few Alligators.

There are at least 2 alligators in this area. They are known as “Boots” and “Bags”. Sorry we didn’t get close enough to see his name tag.


Here he comes…time to move on down the way!!
