Waders at Port Aransas, near Corpus Christi

Today we revisited the stunning wader site at Port Aransas,  Its four hours drive north from the Rio Grande and still another four hours or so back to Houston.  This is the second time we have visited Port Aransas for good reason - its stunning and perfect for some photography.  The highlight was once again several hundred Stilt Sandpiper but also some Wilsons Phalaropes and various other waders including Short-billed Dowitcher, Semi-palmated and White-rumped Sandpiper, Dunlin (alpina), American Avocet, Roseate Spoonbill, Snowy Plover and Least Sandpiper.  We also found a pair of Horned Larks on the sand bank and a Frigatebird in the bay.

Tomorrow we head for the High Island area for the last couple nights of our trip.
