Anzalduas ranks with the most popular and productive birding sites in the valley, with a notable list of specialties and rarities to its credit. It’s best to visit Anzalduas on a weekday if possible, to avoid the crowds of picnickers, boaters, and others enjoying its recreational facilities. The entrance road passes through a grassy area where Western Meadowlark often winters with Easterns. Sparrows of many species also winter, and wintering Sprague’s Pipit has been found. Appearances can be deceiving, on several levels, as you pass the park entrance station. At first glance the park seems to be too mowed and managed for good birding. And because the Rio Grande makes a tight loop here, you ’ll have the somewhat disconcerting feeling of looking north into Mexico (to another park across the river). Anzalduas is also bigger than it looks at first.
