Whooping Cranes feeding on Razor Clams in St. Charles' Bay at Goose Island State Park on Wednesday, March 03, 2010. It was a sunny day without wind. They were feeding along St. Charles' Bay Road between 12th Street and 8th Street.
The Fennessey Ranch is a parcel of Texas lore, a small portion of an historic ranch that has remained in the same family for nearly two centuries. The 4000-acre ranch is bordered by the Mission River on three sides, and its impressive diversity of habitats has attracted over 400 species of birds (more than many states!). Tours are available, and may be arranged through the ranch's website.
