Birding at Hagerman National Wildlife has been a popular tradition since the beginnings of the refuge in 1946. Birding experts come from all over the U.S. to experience the diversity and abundance of birds. Birding experts track populations through weekly surveys which often result in the identification of over 100 species in a single day. Bald Eagles soar overhead, Painted Buntings flutter through the open prairie, and Migrating Snow Geese gather by the masses.

If you are a "Birder" than Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge is a must see!
