A surprising experience in the desert.We arrived at 6am to be extremely warmly greeted by the staff. There are 9 dams of water all flocking with birds of all varieties. The vast majority of birds I saw were "lifers" for me. We enjoyed our relatively short 4 hours of birding that we returned the following day for another 3 days.... More

The bird Viewing area is a very nice park to view a number of birds. Be careful during the summer and carry water as it can be extremely hot and uncomfortable during the summer. Best to viewing is in the spring and fall. Go early in the morning for the best experience. They Henderson staff is very helpful.

Hard to find location near the water treatment plant. Be persistent and you will find the visitor center far from the road. Walking trails are well-marked which pass along the edges of ponds. Saw many water birds and other nesting birds in the reeds and trees. Take a quick walk or wander for hours. There are benches to relax at... More

The bird preserve is a wonderful place to visit. If you are a birder you will see 100s of different species. Many migratory birds use the bird preserve as a "rest stop" enroute to their final destination. In addition to the birds local fauna and flora can be seen. Obviously the preserve is located in the desert and it's hot... More

Several different species of birds and wildlife call this home and there is never a time when something new appears. Even the employees see a new bird calling this home frequently. The preserve is well laid out and easy to cover and is handicap accessible.

Henderson City Bird Viewing Preserve is a very worthwhile place to visit for bird viewers. We had some time before my flight so my friends took me there. It was a quiet day, could have been the weather so I didn’t get to see too many birds. A free bird viewing check-off list/brochure is available and it was quite handy.... More

This is the best place if you just want to relax & breathe in the fresh air & see lots of birds and ducks. We take about 600 photos every year we come to visit.

One of those places you think as a local, how did I not know about this? It doesn't have a large welcome center like the wetlands but the small welcome center had a pigeon skeleton, a hummingbird egg, stuffed shoveler ducks and plenty other things for kids to see and learn about. Outside kids can see birds, bunnies and other... More
