Birding Northeastern New Mexico offers a backdrop of breathtaking scenery and diverse habitat. Northeastern New Mexico is home to over 400 species of birds.
New Mexico Bird Finding Guide states San Miguel County, "has perhaps the greatest habitat and species diversity of any county in northeastern New Mexico."
The Pecos area has four distinct life zones including pinyon/juniper, mixed coniferous and ponderosa pines, subalpine around 9500 feet, and alpine at over 11,000 feet with each of these zones supporting unique bird species.
Pecos River Cabins offers an ideal Bird Watching destination. Many of our birding guests obtain multiple Lifers on property.
