Percha Dam State Park is

Birding
Located north of Hatch along the Rio Grande, this is one of the best places in the state for birdwatching. The central area is an open bosque which attracts phainopepla, woodpeckers, flycatchers, and vireos. The willow and cottonwood habitat boasts some of the best warbler watching during spring and fall migrations. The half-mile river trail is excellent for birds in all seasons. Watch the river for ducks, shorebirds, and kingfishers, the bosque for passerines, hawks, owls, and woodpeckers. Within a small woodland at the park, there are commonly flycatchers, woodpeckers, and warblers during migration. Accipiters and falcons often seek the smaller birds here.
