Report Your Big Bend Bird SightingsPark visitors are often our eyes and ears for rare or unusual bird sightings. If you see a bird listed as rare, sporadic, or otherwise not listed on the park's checklist, please stop in at a visitor center and fill out an observation report. Be sure to include pertinent information such as an overall description of the bird, activity, or behavior, time of day, and where the bird was seen in the park. We appreciate your help!
