Boy Scout woods was one of our favorite places to bird on the Island.
For pure migration excitement, if the timing is right, and great convenience as the RV park we camped in was across the street.
A few days I had Jeff go over before me to check out the action. If it was hopping with birds I would head over right away.
Houston Audubon has it presence here
The Kiosk below is where they sell daily passes for entrance into the sanctuaries.
They also sell a few books, tee shirts, bug spray, water and a few other items.
There are free guided walks with expert birders…it can get a little crowded on the boardwalk.
The smell of privet and honeysuckle fill the air.
Great close up views of birds bathing..
The birds line up…and come down one at a time to take baths..Sometimes its a bathing free for all.
Correct me if I am wrong, I believe this to be a female
Berry eating time.
High Island should be on every birders list of places to go for spring migration.
Jeff and I have left Texas and are migrating north with the birdies..
I called to help with the oil spill but haven't heard back from anyone..so ..we continue north, and will send a donation to help with the cleanup.
North Carolina here we come.
