Bayside Wildlife Drive

Bayside wildlife drive is a 15 mile drive through part of the nearly 100,000 acres at Laguna Atascosa. It is a really neat drive that carries you through thorn forest, coastal prairies and out to the Laguna Madre. Laguna Madre is what separates the mainland from Padre Island.
We saw various birds on the drive including some shore birds. We were not fortunate enough to see the Aplomado Falcon or an ocelot. Both of which are rare.
