Rockport-Fulton is a paradise for bird watchers. There are opportunities year-round to enjoy the hundreds of species that call the area home, and Majestic Oak makes a fantastic base to do so.

The area hosts ten birding sites listed on the Great Texas Birding Trail, both coastal and inland. Each season brings different species. In the spring, migrating birds are attracted to the Coastal Bend’s varied habitats. During the summer months, the barrier islands are home to nesting birds, which can be seen from local boat tours. Fall brings raptors and shorebirds, and hummingbirds entertain homeowners who prepare feeders in their yards. Even winter has its own birding charm, with both resident birds and lingering migrators. You can plan a trip along the Great Texas Birding Trail by checking out the information at .

A great place in the area to enjoy world class bird watching is Fennessey Ranch, with over 4,000 acres of varied habitats, including wetlands, natural lakes, and riparian brush. The ranch’s borders serve to “trap” different species, making it a sanctuary for bird-lovers. Customized tours are available, and you can get more information at .

Wildlife conservation has long been a focus of residents of the Coastal Bend. The Aransas National Wildlife Refuge is a federally protected park located in our area that hosts migratory birds, as well as other wildlife, on over 100,000 acres of grasslands, wetlands, and marshes. From October- March, the refuge hosts an abundance of whooping cranes and provides updates via its website on these winter Texans. It’s hard to believe that in 1941 only fifteen of these incredible birds survived in the wild. You can learn more about whooping cranes and get information on the refuge at .

Many companies in the area offer tours and educational opportunities along the coast and inland. To find the perfect tour for you, browse a list of companies at #

We’re also installing a workout room that will features weights, cardio, and an infrared sauna. It will be ready mid-July.

But with all the upgrades and changes going on, we’re most excited about our brand new, saltwater pool. We had to push back construction a bit, so it won’t be completed until the end of August, but it will be worth the wait! It’s tucked under the oak trees so guests will have a good mix of sun and shade, and heated water means the pool and therapy jacuzzi will be open year-round. Safety gates will make sure to protect the kiddos visiting with you.
