There are several towns we like to stop when traveling east and west along I-10. Beaumont, TX is one of them. We discovered, less than four miles from the RV Park, Cattail Marsh, a scenic wetland and broadwalk. There are hiking trails around the marches with lovely views of sleeping alligators (ha), and the lovely broadwalk that extends over the water that provides excellent views of the birds. Beaumont is where we stay when visiting High Island.
The Green-winged Teal is our smallest duck. They are common and usually found on shallow ponds, marshes and flooded fields. It was fun watching them resting, sleeping, feeding and foraging.
