Most of us have seen video of various types of migrating animals, but one migration is catching the eye of beach goers along the Texas Coast.  Stingrays.  Hundreds of them at the surface and thousands more below.  This is the scene anglers at Corpus Christi’s Bob Hall Pier have been treated to this week.  There are so many rays that the water almost seemed to turn to gold.  Officials say these are Cownose rays going through their annual migration.  They’re following the water temperature, so they’re coming up here where it’s starting to get a little bit warmer. Officials say that some migrations can reach the tens of thousands in numbers.
