Feather Lake is a 43.5-acre wildlife sanctuary based on a 40-acre wetland built by the City of El Paso in 1969 as a stormwater-retention basin. Since 1976, the El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society has maintained the wildlife sanctuary. There have been 219 different species of birds observed, especially those associated with water. Feather Lake’s water sources are irregular; the lake is sometimes dry. During the spring, many White-faced Ibis’s come to the sanctuary. In the fall, crowds of Yellow-headed Blackbirds can be seen. In the winter, this park is also inhabited with ducks.
