The Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge is a wildlife conservation area along the coast of Texas, west of the town of High Island, Texas. It borders East Bay, part of the Galveston Bay complex, behind Bolivar Peninsula at the Gulf of Mexico
Acres of freshwater and saltwater marshes provide you opportunities to see shorebirds, raptors, waterfowl, and all seven species of North American rail. The Woodlot Trail provides a little-known secret to birders seeking migrating neotropical songbirds (including the prothonotary warbler), and Shoveler’s Pond will take you on a drive with alligators, rails, and waterfowl alike. Drive the auto tour loop, sit in a wildlife blind, or walk a trail to get beautiful views of local and visiting birds all with the backdrop of amazing sunrises and sunsets of the bay.
