Come down the Gulf Freeway (I-45) and take 61st Street right, entering
Turn right on the Seawall and you'll leave town in about five
minutes. The Seawall ends, but you stay on the same four-lane road. Where
it becomes two-lane in Jamaica Beach, go 1.6 miles further, and turn right
into Indian Beach. Take the FIRST right (quickly), which is Shaman, the road
turns left 90 degrees, and dead ends into the cul-de-sac where my driveway is.
Week of great birding at the amazing height of the spring bird migration. You may register for the entire week for $400, or pay $100/day according to your schedule. In late April, the trees drip with warblers and other songbird migrants and the shorelines are filled with breeding plumaged shorebirds and rare species as well. We visit all the good places and have fantastic results!
Spring Migration Photo Workshop: Spend five days shooting amazing shorebirds and songbirds all over the Upper Texas Coast.
