For the past two years, Port Aransas has been designated as America's 'Birdiest Small Coastal City'.
To hold onto this title, there's a contest taking place this weekend, called the Big Sit. Team Port Aransas Spoonbills will see how many birds can be counted over a 72 hour period, Saturday, April 28 through Monday, April 30.
Birders will count birds within the city limits of Port Aransas and also contribute to the Nueces County list for "Birdiest Coastal County". We invite novice and avid birders to participate and send findings to Joan Holt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best of luck to our Port A team!
