Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge is very near the Texas coast east of Houston, bordering East Galveston Bay. The 34,000 acre refuge is host to an abundance of wildlife, from alligators to bobcats. Many migratory birds use the marchlands.
Visitors can see as many as 27 species of ducks, and geese, warblers, shorebirds, songbirds, egrets, spoonbills, yellor rail, ibis and many more birds frequent the refuge.
This first video was taken on our 2.5 mile drive around Shoveler Pond, a 220 acre freshwater impoundment with an observation platform and a 750 foot walkway out into the march. We lost count of the alligators we saw at 17, and found many birds and a turtle. It's a long 15 minute video, with much more than the alligators.
