Updated Guide to Birding In and Around Silver City

Did you know that approximately 65% of the bird species in New Mexico have been seen in Grant County? The lush riparian habitat of the river valleys, the scenic mountains of the Gila National Forest, and surrounding grasslands offer many opportunities to see a variety of species throughout the year.

We're excited to announce that Jackie Blurton and Rachelle Bergmann have created an updated map and guide to birding locations in and around Silver City! At most locations, little walking is required and birding can be done near where you park your vehicle.

To access the 3-page, print-friendly guide, please visit the Birding Locations page OR click here to access the guide directly.

See you on the trails!

Audubon releases Bird Migration Explorer

Just in time for migration season, Audubon has launched the Bird Migration Explorer, a first-of-its-kind, interactive, digital platform that visualizes the annual voyages of more than 450 North American migratory species.

The Bird Migration Explorer allows users to see the most complete data collected on migratory species in their neighborhoods and where those birds go throughout the year.

It includes:

  • Interactive, animated maps of the full annual migration for all 458 species (Bird Species)
  • More than 4.2 million data points showing connections across the hemisphere made by local migratory birds (Connections)
  • A library of 19 Conservation Challenges that migratory birds are exposed to throughout the year and across the western hemisphere (Conservation Challenges)
Check out the quick guide on the site and this short video to get started.
