We enjoyed an hour at this Preseve watching local birds and waterfowl. However, can't rate it very highly as it was sparsely populated the time we were there and we did not see much activity. Not sure if that was simply the time of day we visited or just the fact that it is in the desert and birds are... More

My husband and I went to the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve expecting to take a 15 minute stroll and hop back in the car. 90 minutes later, we got back to the car and were still chatting at this "owl faced" hawk we saw, the bight red/orange eyes of the mud ducks and the song birds. We are not birding... More

A great easy walk about 4 miles around and about. Its an edge of a fly thru so lots of birds, mostly water fowl. Some wonderful small creatures, squirrels, rabbits.

So many wild birds to see, did not know where to start.The volunteer staff at the office knows their stuff.They will lend you binoculars if you do not have them.Spring annd fall are the top times but we visited in winter and so much to see.Gets hot I imagine in the summer and not much shade.They close in mid afternoon.

Visiting from Wisconsin we enjoyed the walk around all of the different ponds. Saw many 'winter' fowl and enjoyed the breath-taking mountain views. The lady checking us in was very cordial. The scenery here will consistently change with the seasons. We hope to return very soon!

My family went here in the fall to do some volunteer planting for the preserve. It is a very nice birding place, well set up. Park like setting and nice walk around/near pond. Would love to return in the spring and watch the birds.

Thank Patricia R
