Boca Chica is great! Especially during the spring or summer.
There's lots of birds, here's a list of the ones I saw when I went:
Great Blue Heron
Little Blue Heron
Other small birds
And so much more....
Here are the bad things:
1. Litter bugs me, there is a big heap of trash in the beach.
Some people should clean it up. At the same time, people
may recycle the items. There was an abandoned fishing pole
stand, boards and a shovel on the beach which my dad and I
used. The stand for fishing, and the shovel and the boards
just in case we got in quicksand.
2. There's jellyfish all over the beach. Not that it bothers me, but
someone could get stung by touching the tentacles by
mistake and could get hurt, and they were Portugese
Man o' War. I noticed that because I saw one and thought it
was a shell or something, but I stepped on it (I was wearing
shoes) and noticed it was like a balloon. I then realized it was
a jellyfish because I kicked it and the tentacles showed.
3. There was a dead SEA TURTLE lying on the sand when
I went there. My freind says it was there since last summer.
It was probably rolled over by a car, its shell was cracked and
its intestines were out, it was about a meter long and its neck
was about a foot in circumference.
I'm an ornithologist, or should I say birder that
enjoys wathing and identifying birds in South Texas and maybe the world in the future.
I HIGHLY RECCOMEND IT!
