The birdwatching is excellent in this area. In the back yard, we

mesquite trees and brush on our property that attracts wildlife. Greenjays,
Altimira and hooded orioles, caracaras, cardinals, mockingbirds,
flickers,doves, etc. are common as well as some shore birds. At
night pelicans, etc. glide through the lights on the pier. Within 3 miles
are lots of shore birds such as roseatte spoonbills, pelicans,
cormorants, etc. as they fish off a small inlet in outgoing and
incoming tides at the Hubert/Kaufer Park area inbetween our bayhouse
and Kings's Inn.
Drum, Redfish, and Trout are among fish being caught off our pier in
Baffin Bay. Youngsters will enjoy bringing a cane pole and catching
large perch and other small baitfish, etc. around the pier.
Lots of wildlife around property. Bobcats,rabbits, javelina, etc.
are in brush close to the property.
Excellent location for wade fishing. Grassy muddy, silty bottom
holds the fish in winter and provides food at other times.
Excellent spot for fishermen, birders and/or vacationers that want a
quiet,out-of-the way spot for relaxation and solitude. About 2 1/2
hours to Mexico, about 1 1/2 hour to Corpus Christi Aquarium, and
