    The thunder of 40,000 snow geese taking flight, the salty breeze off the Texas Gulf, or the sight of a 12-foot alligator loafing on a muddy bank make a trip to Texas Mid-Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex a sensory banquet in any season.

    Posted by Connie Marquez on January 14, 2012 at 1:35 AM Comments comments (0)

    The Hudson Woods Unit of San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge consists of over 1000 acres of old growth forest, an oxbow lake (Scoby Lake), willow swamps, and partially cleared land which will be restored to wetland forest. As you hike the trails, listen and you may hear the drilling of a woodpecker, the sound of a squirrel cracking a nut, or the songs of a variety of birds, some of which live here all year, and some which migrate through on their journey between the tropics and northern regions.
