Shorebird Migration at Hagerman NWR

Mid-March - mid-May and mid-August - late October are times to view the Central Flyway shorebird migration at the Refuge.  Each spring many thousands of shorebirds pass through,  on their way to breeding grounds in the northern US, Canada or the high Arctic.  They are back again in the fall, on their way to the tropics or even South America, to spend the winter.  The Refuge offers wetlands for resting and re-fueling.  Shorebirds can be a challenge to identify; literature and field guides are available at the Visitor Center.

Geese At Hagerman NWR

November - February - Trips to Hagerman NWR to see the huge flock of wintering geese are an annual holiday tradition for many visitors. Please stop by the Visitor Center for information and visitor services such as maps,  free wildlife guides and binoculars-for-loan.
