Fri, June 24, 2016 through Wed, August 31, 2016 - Please be aware that a bird nesting area has been fenced off on University Beach at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi to allow chicks to hatch safely. Nesting sites are in decline in the area, and the Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program has identified the nests of Least Terns and Wilson Plovers on the west end of the beach across Ocean Drive from the University campus. Bird watching is encouraged from a distance. Watch the birds for signs of disturbance, and move further away if adult birds take flight from the nest and act agitated. Leaving the nest unattended for even a brief time leaves the eggs vulnerable to heat and predators. Additionally, please do not drive, walk or run through fenced-off area and keep dogs on leashes.
