Report: On Jan 18 2003 I took a trip to Brazoria NWR near Galveston TX. While on this trip our group saw a few White-tailed Hawks which was very awsome. Then we also a Cinnomon Teal on one of the refuges ponds. Also Red-breated Mergansers, and Bufflehead were very common when you got closer to the ocean. If you are ever down in the Houston area I would recommond that you should go to this refuge it was well worth the trip. Then latter that day pur group went down to the Quintana Jetty which is near the refuge. While there we saw a Purple Sandpiper which is a vagrant to our area here. All in all I thought that this trip was very very good.
