Some years ago I happened to spend a few months in Las Vegas. The Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve was a favorite stop of mine when I had the time. It’s a wonderful mix of public and private efforts directed at making their waste water treatment facility a showcase for birds and birders.
Now I see they have built some blinds as well as elevated platforms overlooking the various ponds. This according to a recent article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Sure wish they’d have had that when I was there.
If you’re a birder and head to Las Vegas for whatever reason, make sure you stop by and tell them I said ‘hi.’
