For birders not just in the United States but around the world,Aransas has long been synonymous with the Whooping Crane, one of the most famous endangered species on earth. After nesting in northern Canada, the sole traditionally wild flock of these birds flies 2,500 miles south each fall to spend the winter on one small stretch of the central Texas coast — and each winter hundreds of nature lovers (or just curious travelers) take time to see them.
