A vast nature reserve - you can drive for miles and barely scratch the surface. Especially good in winter for wildfowl and waders.

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

Laguna Atascosa

This is the observation platform at Stover Point, overlooking the Laguna Madre the shores of which are teeming with waders

As usual there’s a well-appointed visitor center complete with feeders and water features

Birds are attracted to this water feature right next to the entrance to the center
