|Copano Bay Fishing Pier
|Season: Winter, Migration
Fee charged. Try walking the fishing pier with a scope, and scanning the bay for loons, grebes, and diving ducks. Look for American Oystercatcher on the shell spoil islands (particularly those adjacent to the southeast corner of the causeway), and watch over the causeway itself during spring and fall for migrating hawks. Raptors are generally hydrophobic, and will fly directly along the causeway rather than over the open bay waters when migrating along the coast. Peregrine Falcon, Merlin, Osprey, and Swallow-tailed Kite (rare) have been seen traversing the bridge.
