Desert Shores Wildlife


In Las Vegas, you generally think of wildlife in the form of things that happen on the strip.  But because of the lakes, Desert Shores brings its residents spectacular wildlife of the more natural kind.  Waterfowl in particular see the lakes in disbelief as they fly over the desert, and can't resist stopping and giving everyone a treat.

The people who live here enjoy many advantages.  But few of us expected nature to have such an impact on us here, and those who take time to look are often in awe.
