Jewel in the Gulf Crown

Designated a "Globally Important Bird Area," Bolivar Flats has also been called "the crown jewel of shorebird habitats." In this area administered by Houston Audubon, a chapter of the National Audubon Society, the protected salt marshes and mudflats teem with birds like marbled godwits, semipalmated sandpipers, sanderlings, willets and many other species of shore and waterbirds—a banded Wilson’s plover is seen here. The surrounding estuary is a refuge for birds like the long-billed dowitcher, the whimbrel and greater and lesser yellowlegs.
