CTC 013: Lookout Point
Season: Winter


From Site 12, proceed west on Business 35 past the turning basins, then turn left (south) on Margerum Road toward Tres Palacios Bay. Park at the end of Margerum Road and scan the bay for waterbirds (as with the previous two sites). In addition, pay close attention to the various gulls that congregate around the fishing boats docked in the harbor. Bonaparte's, Laughing, Ring-billed, and Herring are to be expected in winter, but each year a few oddities such as Lesser Black-backed, Glaucous, and Black-legged kittiwake wend their way to the coast as well.
