Vasquez Rocks is home to an incredibly diverse animal and insect population. Aside from our wild creatures, the park also cares for multiple rehabilitated, non-releasable native animals that are used for educational purposes and well cared for under the supervision of California Fish and Wildlife and the County of Los Angeles.
Some of the most easily visible and most interesting habitants of the park are the birds. From our smaller residents, such as the House Finch, all the way to the occasionally-spotted, magnificent Golden Eagle, there is something for everyone, whether you are a dedicated birder or simply an admirer of these fascinating and diverse creatures. We encourage you to bring your cameras and binoculars to the park to observe the wild population, or observe our rehabilitated raptors (birds of prey) that are located adjacent to the park office.
