From these two (linked) roads, you can see marsh and waterbirds for sure. You can also see North Deer Island, a massive waterbird rookery, from here.

  • 16 miles

This tour takes you through the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, with plenty of stop-off points to watch birds and animals and explore roadside exhibits.

  • A few miles
  • Paved

This is a short drive along Tres Palacios Bay, excellent for birding.

  • 6.7 miles

This lovely road winds through surprisingly intense scenery. The colors of the valley are intense on their own, but the gorges splitting the foliage make this all the more of an astounding vista.

A drive along ponds and transitory wetland that can be very productive for birders. Look out for the prairie dog town.

  • Dirt and caliche

This dirt road winds through protected park land. Keep an eye out for Tropical Kingbirds.

  • 6 miles

This is a steep road of sudden curves, but the descent at the end into the Basin is well worth the drive. The drive itself is well-worth the drive - you'll rise out of the desert into a mountain landscape. In fact, this road climbs almost 6,000 feet.

This is a route threading through the habitats of both songbirds, shorebirds, and waterfowl.

  • Paved

This road drives through mixed brush filled with birds.

  • 1 mile

This road is primarily used to access two backcountry campsites, but the view of the Chisos Mountains from here is astounding.
