The Hans and Pat Suter Wildlife Refuge is located in Corpus Christi, Texas, in the southeast part of the city, near the Pharaoh Valley subdivision.
The wildlife refuge
lies on the western shore of Oso Bay and is considered to be one of the best sea bird watching
areas in the world. The nearby Pharaohs golf course also serves as a haven for coastal and migratory birds
. Some of the birds regularly found in the refuge are pelicans, herons, seagulls, coots, egrets, spoonbills, and ducks.
The refuge has a pier for viewing the birds and a bike and hiking trail
runs through it, meandering by native plants and running along the water. There are also grills and picnic tables in the park area.
