Rockport is a Gulf Coast mecca for bird watching and photography. The Aransas National Wildlife Refuge borders an expanse of water to the North of Rockport, St. Charles Bay, Dunham Bay, Sundown Bay, and Mustang Lake, which all have shoreline that touches the refuge. These areas are a year-round home to many and a winter sanctuary to others as they migrate. One of the most well-known is the highly endangered Whooping Crane. Aransas County is home to the largest wintering population of Whooping Cranes in the world. They can be viewed and photographed from short distances on boat tours.
