A bay for the birds,too

Corpus Christi Bay is considered one of the premier bird watching spots in the world. Over 400 species of birds live here or pass through during different seasons.

The bay's location makes it ideal for ducks, sandpipers,and warblers to stop and rest during their yearly migration south.

Some birds spend all winter here. For example, the red headed duck, which summers in the northern United States and Canada, migrates to Corpus Christi Bay and nearby bays each winter.

Millions of hummingbirds stop in the Corpus Christi Bay area to feed and regain their energy during their fall and spring migrations.

Thousands of people come to the area during the hummingbirds' fall migration to see these "jewels of the sky".

Corpus Christi Bay

The Corpus Christi Bayfront is a wonderful natural asset in a beautiful tropical setting with mild year round temperatures.

    Nice Pelican picture. I saw a small flock flying over the Florida Everglades. They are magnificent birds.
