Avian resources of the Corpus Christi Bay National Estuary Program (CCBNEP) study area include 494 species of birds, which were characterized utilizing three datasets for historical trends, the Texas Colonial Waterbird Counts, and two National Audubon Society Christmas Bird Counts: Arkansas National Wildlife Refuge and Corpus Christi. Although no overall trends for all birds collectively were identified, positive, negative, and neutral trends were determined for individual species. Over 400 trend analyses were run on the various species, and 101 species or groups are discussed individually with reasons for trends suggested.
