Lorenzi Park in Las Vegas is a 100-year-old, 60-acre park featuring mature trees, open grass fields, and the 3-acre, spring-fed Twin Lakes. These human-made ponds each have an island and are stocked with fish, attracting current headliners a gorgeous female Belted Kingfisher, diving Double-crested Cormorants, and a statuesque Great Egret. During the winter, these ponds attract fancy waterfowl from up north including Canvasbacks, Redheads, and Ring-necked Ducks. Mixed in with the resident Canada and domestic geese and Muscovy Ducks, one might find Snow, Ross’s, and Greater White-fronted Geese. Woodpeckers, warblers, and hummingbirds can be found in the flowers and trees and hawks and kestrels hunt from above.
We will meet at the parking lot on the west side of the park, off of Twin Lakes Drive, near the Nevada State Garden Clubs building. The map location is here.
In two hours we will walk one to two miles of mostly level, paved paths, but we may cross grass fields that could be wet and covered in goose poop so wear the appropriate footwear. As always, when birding in our arid climate please remember to bring enough water, protection from the sun, and snacks as needed for yourself. Don’t forget your binoculars if you have them.
