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.
You never know what you may find when you join our volunteer birding guides on a tour of Padre Island National Seashore - the magnificent grasslands, the beach filled with shorebirds, and the long, shallow, hypersaline lagoon of the Laguna Madre. Each habitat abounds with a rich variety of birds. Your guide will take you to some significant birding locations within these habitats, including one that would otherwise be inaccessible to the public. Bird tours are usually conducted from November through April each year. Call the Malaquite Visitor Center at (361) 949-8068 for more details and
further information on the birding tours and classes.
