Hans Suter is a terrific boardwalk out on to an estuary. The birds are magnificent. I love coming here.

I was there for less than two hours and spotted over 20 species of animals: Two types of pelicans, avocets, ducks, teals, coots, skimmers, spoonbills, kingfishers, turtles, coons, 2 types of egrets, 2 different herons, etc.. Its a little odd that the water comes from the reclamation plant but there is no offensive smell. There's a pier that goes next to the reclamated water and ends at the bay were you get a lovely view of the local university. This is a really nice spot I'd suggest to out-of-towners who would like to get an idea of how pretty corpus could be if it wasn't full of ... people and all the crap that comes with them. Great spot for nature walks and picnics. But nothing too crazy- its under video surveillance!

Found out about this area from a brochure at Padre Island National Seashore. Really glad I visited. Easy trail, boardwalk overlooking shallow area containing literally thousands of birds. Skimmers, pelicans, gulls, avocet and numerous other waterfowl were the featured events of the day. Visited twice and each time, occupants were a little different. Well worth the stop here.

A great birding destination within the city limits of Corpus Christi. A short nature trail connects the parking lot with the boardwalk. Depending on the time of the year you are liable to see hundreds if not thousands of birds across the lagoon and marshland. The trail and boardwalk provide easy access for anyone with mobility issues. Don't forget to bring your camera and binoculars!
