Boardwalk and Observation Tower Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of my favorite sites to hike along the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail is the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center with its easily accessible boardwalk and observation tower. The center provides an ideal place for birding enthusiasts to score a few more avian species for the life list, with a phenomenal number of waterfowl species concentrated in one location.

Best yet, it’s inadvertently disguised as an attractive destination for a summer sunset viewing to entice those bird-indifferent companions. Just don’t tell them you intend to hang out on the observation deck until nightfall to catch an eyeglass full of a magnificent frigatebird."
