High Island

The Houston Audubon Society has several sanctuaries in and around the city of High Island, TX that are world-famous birding hotspots. Birding during the spring migration is especially exciting not only because of the huge number of migrating shorebirds and passerines but also because of the rookery (Roseate Spoonbills, Neotropic Cormorants, and several species of herons and egrets) at the Smith Oaks Sanctuary.
