Birding The Oaks RV Park is home to many species of birds.
Cranes in the back yard are great site in the winter. Several varieties of Dove, Juncos, Wood Peckers, Ravens, Crows, Hawks, and many others are regulars in and around the park.
(Go to the local photos in the Photography Section for a sample.)
In the nearby Gila National Forest approximately 337 bird species have been sighted.
166 species are known to breed on the forest,
114 are more-or-less regular non-breeders, and 57 are considered to be casual or accidental.
The numerous species of birds found is largely related to the diverse ecological habitat found on the Gila and location on a migratory flight path.
