The 7,063-acre Clive Runnells Mad Island Marsh Preserve was part of an expansive coastal wetlands and upland prairie system which, 60 years ago, stretched nearly unbroken along the mid- and upper-Texas Gulf Coast. Today, the Preserve includes brackish and fresh water wetlands, coastal prairie, ag fields and some thorn scrub along the ICW. Birds that are expected on this trip are ducks, cranes, waders, rails, shorebirds, wrens, raptors and sparrows. We might also see an Alligator. And, if all this were not enough the Smithsonian Banding Team will be on the Preserve mist-netting and studying neotropical migrants. (305 species recorded in eBird)
