Fennessey Ranch is a rich network of meadows, brush, prairie, freshwater wetlands, natural lakes, and riparian woodlands. The 3,261-acre wildlife oasis is host to numerous types of birds, plants, amphibians, reptiles, insects, and mammals. The Ranch is designed to be an environmentally friendly business that profits from traditional livestock ranching, as well as oil and gas drilling, wildlife tours, hunting leases, and photography trips.
Fennessey Ranch is in the heart of the Central Flyway and provides world class birding opportunities. More than 420 species of resident and migratory birds have been recorded on the Ranch, including painted buntings, green jays, swallow-tailed kites, white-tailed hawks, crested caracara, great kiskadees, and bald eagles, just to name a few. The Ranch has several custom-built birding and photography blinds. Each blind is strategically placed in areas of high bird activity and generally near water sources.

The ranch is located 40 miles northeast of Corpus Christi in an area where four biotic regions overlap, creating unique and lush habitat for an abundance of wildlife.
