Camp Verde and the surrounding Verde Valley are some of the country’s premier bird watching locales. With an abundance of water in an otherwise largely arid landscape, the valley serves as both an ideal host to resident species and as a popular resting spot for migratory flocks.

Birdwatchers have documented over 300 bird species along the Verde River and its tributaries. Visit the Verde Valley Birding and Nature Festival’s website to access an interactive map of regional birding trails
