At the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve visitors can expect to see thousands of migratory waterfowl as well as numerous resident desert birds. Located within the Henderson Water Treatment Facility, the Preserve sits on approximately 140 paths.
During the winter and early spring you can expect to see many species of duck such as the northern shoveler, green wing, cinnamon and blue wing teal, pintail, bufflehead, and one of the most beautiful of all North American ducks, the wood duck. Winter is also an ideal time to see geese (Canada, snow and Ross) and returning tundra swan.
The Preserve also features golden eagles, peregrine falcons and northern harriers. Resident desert species include verdin, Abert’s towhee, Gambel’s quail, greater roadrunner and crissal thrasher.
When you visit you can expect to do a lot of walking, so be sure to wear appropriate clothing and comfortable walking shoes. Cameras and binoculars are also recommended. If you do not have binoculars, the Preserve has some available to loan you.
Free guided birdwatching classes are also provided.
