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.
See you on the trails!
