~Birds around Dead Horse Ranch State Park

Western Bluebirds

Bluebirds were everywhere. They must be flocking to migrate. It was fun watching them hunt for bugs.

Dead Horse Ranch State Park is home to the annual Friends of Verde Valley Birding Festival, which takes place in April. If you enjoy birding and are in the area then this event is worth attending. Here is a link: https://verderiver.org/birding-festival/

Throughout the year the park puts out feeding stations to attract birds. It sure makes it easy to sit on a bench and watch the birds fly in and out.

Sorry for the quality of this photo. She was hanging around a kid’s playground in the park.


Happy Birding!
