Aransas National Wildlife Refuges

Austwell, Texas

"Birding" is the sport of watching, listening and marveling at the colors, shapes, sounds, and antics of birds. People of all ages are discovering that a little time and patience will be well rewarded by the ability to identify and understand many species of birds. For the beginner, a note of caution: birding is habit-forming! Should you become hooked on this delightful pastime there is no known cure.


Aransas carries the distinction of having the second highest species count in the National Wildlife Refuge System. A total of 392 species have been recorded at Aransas, a number which results from several factors: the refuge location along the Gulf coast ( major "funneling" area for many species of birds during migration), and the variety of habitats on the refuge, from salt marsh to grassland to oak woodland.

There is no "best" season for birds at Aransas, since each season has its own specialties. Popular times, however, include the winter and spring, with whooping cranes and large numbers of migrating songbirds, respectively. If you can only make it in the summer, you will be treated to, among other things, painted buntings, wood storks, and magnificent frigatebirds. And the fall brings myriads of shorebirds in August and waterfowl in October and November. In all seasons, Aransas truly is a birder's paradise.

Neotropical migrant landbirds are those species of landbirds that nest in the United States or Canada, and spend the winter primarily south of our border in Mexico, Central or South America, or in the Caribbean. Many of them, including conspicuous or colorful hawks, hummingbirds, warblers, and tanagers, and less colorful but no less important flycatchers, thrushes, and vireos, are experiencing population declines due to widespread loss of habitats important for their survival. Preservation of many different habitats for nesting, wintering, and migratory stopover sites is becoming vital for the survival of many of these birds. Those Neotropical migrants occurring on this refuge are identified with a "#".


Most birders rely upon three major field guides for Texas birds: "Birds of North America" by C.S. Robbins, "Field Guide to the Birds of North America" by the National Geographic Society, and the series of regional field guides (eastern, western, and Texas) by R.T. Peterson. The Aransas checklist generally follows the order of the sixth edition (1983) of the A.O.U. checklist.


* - after species name denotes a regularly nesting species on, or in close proximity to, the refuge. It does not necessarily indicate that a certain species nests every year.
^ - after species name denotes a species which has nested at Aransas in past years (but not believed to currently be nesting).
# - Neotropical migrant


(NOTE: the following codes are used to describe a bird species' general habitat preference - the birds are by no means restricted to the habitats listed for them.)

a - aquatic (lakes, ponds, open bays, open gulf, etc.)
b - brushland (area of mixed brush and grasses)
f - forest, woodland (includes oak mottes)
g - grassland
m - marsh (freshwater and/or saltwater)


South Texas birds do not recognize traditional calendar seasons: fall migration begins in August (sometimes in July), and wintering birds arrive from September through November. Therefore, seasonal designations for species, intended as general guidelines, are treated as follows on the checklist:

Sp - March-May
S - June-July
F - August-October
W - November-February


c - common: suitable habitat is widespread; should not be missed during appropriate season.
u - uncommon: present, but in moderate numbers (often due to low availability of suitable habitat); not seen on every visit during season.
o - occasional: present, but observed only a few times per season; also includes those species which do not occur each year, while in some years may be fairly common.
r - rare: observed only every 3 to 5 years; records for species at Aransas are sporadic and few.
l - casual: a species out of its normal range, but the proximity to Aransas of the regular range increases the likelihood that the species may continue to occur; less than half a dozen records exist of the species for the refuge.
x - accidental: a species considerably out of its regular range; not expected to occur again; sighting dates listed in "NOTES" column.
