Nature

Southwest plants with Falcon Lake in the distance.Mesquite, huisache, wild olive, ebony, cactus and native grasses cover these gently rolling hills along the Rio Grande.

Falcon International Reservoir is a fishing paradise, especially for anglers seeking black and white bass, catfish and stripers.

Bird watchers enjoy this area, as well. The park's varied bird life includes both common resident birds, which range throughout the American Southwest, and many of the tropical species for which this is the northwestern-most outpost. Birders may also see uncommon species such as the small green kingfisher and the varied bunting.
