My sister Jenny and her husband Lloyd came to visit us for a few days Thanksgiving week. One of our touristy thing to do was visit the new South Padre Island World Birding Center. Lloyd and Jenny are avid birders, so they were excited to see the many new birds for them that make this area home. The recently opened birding center still has some maturing to do around the elevated walkways leading to the Laguna Madre Bay. The wildlife is starting to occupy this area and I am sure it will only get better as time goes by. I have posted a couple of pictures here, but you can see more here. SPI World Birding Center.
Birds were flying everywhere
Many fish were spotted in the canals dug along the walks
Monarch Butterflys were located near the convention center
