Join Audubon star birder, Star Posada, on a field trip to Percha Dam State Park just an hour-and-one-half drive from El Paso. Meet at Cabela’s near Artcraft and the freeway at 7:00 AM to carpool or caravan.

Percha Dam is a great place to watch birds, especially during migration. This State Park is an open bosque of cottonwoods. Some of the birds you can see are Woodpeckers, Warblers, Phainopepla, Flycatchers and Vireos.

Bring mosquito repellant, sunscreen, a hat, good walking tennis shoes/boots. You will be walking through thick vegetation so pants are recommended. Don’t forget your binoculars and field guide books if you have them.

Bring a sack lunch for a picnic at the park.
