Enjoy birding? How about getting paid to bird! My last day is March 2nd, so the Preserve will be looking for a birder who can work on Sunday & Monday (generally two days a week).
STARTING MARCH 1ST THROUGH MAY 31ST, 2014 OUR HOURS WILL BE 6:00 AM TO 2:00 PM, LAST ENTRY IS 1:30 PM.
The entrance to the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve is off Galleria Drive. Take the US95/I515 freeway to the Galleria exit 64B, go east and cross Boulder Highway. The Preserve entrance will be on the north side of the road, follow the driveway and signs to the parking lot and Visitors Center.
We had Sixty- three (63) species observed from February 10 - 16, 2014. The following birds were seen and/or heard by staff and visitors at the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve east of Las Vegas:
Least Bittern (heard)

Best in birding,
