A Birder's Paradise
With more bird species that any other city in the U.S., Corpus Christi has won the competition for being the "Birdiest City in America" for the past 10 years in a row. Needless to say, Padre Island National Seashore, located on 130,000 acres of undeveloped land, is an exceptional place for birdwatching.
The best time to bird Padre Island National Seashore is either during early spring or during fall and winter, when thousands of birds either migrate through the park or spend the winter here.
After exploring and birding at Padre Island National Seashore, you may want to visit some other sites in the Corpus Christi area.
