Hazel Bazemore County Park is renowned for its hawk migration in September and October when tens of thousands of Broad-winged Hawks, Swainson’s Hawks and Mississippi Kites pass along the Nueces River and through the park. Birders from around the world travel here to witness the display and a Hawk Watch is conducted each year to count the hawks. You don't have to wait until the migration to find this box, but it would be a bonus attraction.
