The Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail - Upper Texas Coast
My visit to Rollover Pass, a man-made channel across Bolivar Peninsula, was not planned. Enroute to Yacht Basin Road, I needed a pit stop. I noticed a large group of brown pelicans and a couple of double-crested cormorants roosting on pilings.
I moved closer and saw there were large numbers of pelicans, gulls, and terns in the surf. They appeared to be feeding.
Tens of thousands of shore birds are supposed to gather here at low tide, and I was going to wait and visit then. I was surprised to find so much activity here on a cold, windy, rainy day.
I think this is going to be one of those spots I can visit over and over, finding something different each time.
The original intent of this blog was to visit each site and post only once. I might have to reconsider. There very well may be some that are worthy of multiple posts.
Date of visit: 2/2/2014
Temp: 50 F
Conditions: Overcast, windy, periods of rain.
Species identified (5): Brown Pelican, Laughing Gull, Double-crested Cormorant, Forster's Tern, Willet
I'm linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday. Visit to see more beautiful birds.
