An annual bird count by the Cheyenne - High Plains Audubon Society, is conducted each May at the ranch.

In 2008, out of 123 species observed in the Cheyenne area,Eastern Kingbird sitting on a fence wire 81 were observed at WHR.  Audubon Wyoming has designated WHR as an IBA (important bird area) and is one of the better birding sites in Wyoming.

 At any time of the year, bird watchers are always welcome at the ranch.
