A terrific wetland area with several different pools plus an area of tall trees that is great for migrants, including regular wintering rarities, and a site for seeing Pauraque roosting during the day

All the sites in this section are treated, in detail and with precise maps and directions, in my book ‘Finding Birds in South Texas’

If you have any information which you feel would help to update the book, please email me at and I’ll add your observations to these pages

Estero Llano Grande

The visitor center overlooks one of the best pools

So you can enjoy great birding even from the verandah

As at so many sites in Texas you can get really close to the birds

It’s worth walking to the viewing platform at Alligator Lake, not just because you’ll see good birds here but also because you’ll pass the roosting Pauraque en route... well as the appropriately named Grebe Marsh
