Transcript KEY TO MAP OF BRAZORIA COUNTY 1) Bollers/Chrls+mas Bay/FM 3005- This northeastern portion of Brazoria County is relatively undeveloped, so the birding Is proportionately better than other urban areas in the coun+y. Christmas Bay and Swan Lake are great for waterfowl In the winter. Black Skimmers and Least Tern often nest on the shell roads which lead to the bays off of FM 3005. In late summer look for Magnificent Frlgatebirds in the late evening along FM 3005. 2) Surfslde/Qulntana Jetties- These two jetties are extremely productive in winter, attracting a varle+y of pelagic and northeastern species. Jaegers, Masked Booby, Gannet, Black-legged Kittiwake and Purple Sandpiper are all more-or-less regular visitants to the jetties. Snowy Plover can usually be found along the beach a+ +he base of the jetties. 3) Freeport Marsh- This extensive wetland area can be easily birded from atop the hurrlcan levee which protects Freeport and Lake Jackson from tropical storms. Great for waterfowl in winter, shorebirds in migration, both species of ibis year around. 3A) Freeport Municipal Park- "Precious things come in small packages"....This little park can easily produce 15+ species of"warblers during migration, with 20+ the norm wl+h a "fall-ou+". On Hwy 288 just north of the High School. 4) Bryan Beach Area- Spoil banks and reservoirs In this area can be excellent for shorebirds In migration (particularly Wilson's Phalaropes); salt cedars can be good for migrant passerines; also fairly consistent for Bobolink; Clay-colored Sparrow has been seen here. After crossing the Intercoastal Canal, +urn right at first Intersection (Quintana Jetties to the left); reservoirs can be viewed from levee, look for access spot. 5) San Bernard Wildlife Refuge- This refuge Is presently closed to the public; however, arrangements for entrance can be made through Refuge Manager Ronald Bisbee at 1-849-6062. 6) Dow Nature Tra iI - Enter this excellent hardwood forest from Sycamore Street at Texas 332; the back portion of this area Is presently closed. Good for migrants in the spring and fall. Great Horned Owl, Red-headed Woodpecker year round, and sparrows in the winter. 7) Lake Jackson City Dump- Although rarely birded, this dump should be great for several species of gulls in the winter. Turn off Hwy 332 just west of Catholic church. 8) Lake Jackson City Park- The place Brazoria birders go to see migrant passerines in spring and falI. The three-to-four miles of nature trails can rival High Is. in the spring if the weather conditions are right. Entrance is on south side of Hwy 332 just west of Buffalo Camp Bayou. 9) Big Slough Cemetery- Vermilion Flycatchers in the winter. Black-crowned Night Herons year round. Barred Owl can usually be seen here in the early morning and late evening. 10) Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge- The status for this refuge is the same as San Bernard's. Call Ron Bisbee for more Information. 11) Hoskln's Mound Road- Look for the resident White-tailed Hawk in the open fields along this road, also White-tailed Kite. The brush along the old railroad track which parallels the road can he great for sparrows In the winter.
