Welcome to Sierra County...Birding Pt. 4
Paseo Del Rio State Park: Exit 79 or 75 off of I-25 two miles east of T or C on Highway 51. This riparian canyon south of Elephant Butte Dam features the Rio Grande River as well as upland scrub.This pocket park is underutilized and locals consider it to be a real treasure. Look for Bell's Vireo, Northern Parula, Phainopepla, pyrrhuloxia, Black-Chinned Hummingbird, Gambles Quail, Killdeer, american Coot, Gadwall and Hooded Merganser.
