On Saturday and Wednesday mornings, bird enthusiasts join a naturalist for a guided walk appropriate for beginner and advanced birders. The walks begin at 8AM. Please arrive a little early to join the leader on the viewing deck above the visitor center. Please bring your own binoculars. There is no charge for the guided bird walk, but park entrance fees do apply.
If birding on your own, the Hummingbird Patio is an excellent spot to start your tour. Another good viewing point is the Visitor Center roof. Most year-round birds are found in the riparian area next to Oak Creek or along the field behind the Visitor Center.
The Audubon Society has designated Red Rock State Park as an Important Birding Area (IBA) because of the many species that live or visit here.
