Headquarters for the Desert National Wildlife Range, northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada. The area was set aside to protect Desert Bighorn Sheep. In doing so, they also protected the old homestead at Corn Creek, which has a series of ponds and streams and acts as a bird magnet in the middle of otherwise arid desert.
Birds you can see here include:
Snowy Egret, Green-winged Teal, American Kestrel, Mourning Dove, Black Phoebe, Common Raven, Tree Swallow, Barn Swallow, Bushtit, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Yellow-rumped Warbler, European Starling, Brown-headed Cowbird
