The small resort town of Rockport has been publicizing itself as a birding destination for quite a while — many years before similar communities began to realize the value of birding tourism. Rockport's Hummer/Bird Celebration is one of the nation's leading nature festivals, and the town publishes its own birding guidebook to local sites,which every visiting birder should buy. The town is a popular base for visitors who’ve come to the area to see the wintering Whooping Cranes at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge. While none of the sites around Rockport itself is noted for a particular specialty or rarity, the region offers a good selection of typical central-coast birds in accessible locations with many amenities for travelers.
