CTC 009: Cash's Creek
Season: Winter, Migration

Return to the intersection of FM 1095 and FM 521, go west on FM 521 to FM 2853, then take FM 2853 south. The agricultural fields in this region of Texas (particularly rice) attract hundreds of thousands of cranes, geese, and ducks each winter (for example, over two million Snow Geese annually winter along the upper Texas coast between the Sabine River and Corpus Christi). Check the Snow Goose flocks carefully; Ross' Goose is an increasingly common winter visitor to this region. Cash's Creek crosses FM 2853, and the freshwater marshes along the creek can be viewed from the shoulder of the bridge. Cliff Swallows nest under the bridge in the summer. Search the grasslands along FM 2853 for raptors, including White-tailed Hawk.
