High Island is always a crap shoot. There are lots of other places to check out in the area, Anahuac, Bolivar flats, Rollover Pass, Lafitte's Cove and Galveston Island SP, so I'd say go for it.

I think the seam in the wood of the deck is making the bill look much bigger than it is, hence the grosbeak mistake (i thought it was a grosbeak looking at the thumbnail).
