BIRDING AT ROOSEVELT LAKE &
TONTO NATIONAL MONUMENT AREAS
Birding at Roosevelt lake and the Tonto National Monument can only be described as "Birding Bliss" When you first arrive the best place to start your adventure is at a place called Windy Point. Blackbirds, finches and sparrows seemingly flutter around the parking lot like a moth to a flame. great blue herons flap slowly over the water, while vultures and hawks soar overhead looking for their next meal. In the surrounding brush birders will see and hear Gambel’s Quail. And to make it all perfect, there very few people around.
