West Corpus Christi and Hazel Bazemore County Park Professional Review and Guide
"Tule Lake is located along Up River Road. There is little room for parking; the area is adjacent to a number of refineries and other businesses. Take care to pull off the road a safe distance. Hilltop Community Center, with its several paths, can be filled with joggers in the mornings. Hazel Bazemore Park can be crowded with picnickers and others on weekends; birding is best during the early mornings.
Key birds: Least Grebe, Neotropic Cormorant, Anhinga, White and White-faced Ibis, Roseate Spoonbill, Black-bellied Whistling-Duck, Mottled Duck, Harris’s Hawk, White-tailed Hawk, Crested Caracara, White-tipped Dove, Greater Roadrunner, Groove-billed Ani, Pauraque, Golden-fronted Woodpecker, Great Kiskadee, Green Jay, Long-billed Thrasher, and Olive Sparrow are present yearround. Least Bittern, Wood Stork, Lesser Nighthawk, Buff-bellied Hummingbird, Brown-crested and Scissor-tailed Flycatchers, Cassin’s Sparrow, and Painted Bunting occur in summer."
