Bird Watching

WHR Crow Creek Bird Watching

The Wyoming Hereford Ranch is home for most or part of the year for many species of birds. There are several miles of Crow Creek, numerous 100-year-old cottonwood trees, willows, spruce, and pine providing ideal habitat.

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 the 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.
