There are quite a few species of birds that live within Death Valley. These include the Eared Grebe, the Pied Billed Grebe, the Mallard Duck, the Turkey Vulture, Gambel’s Quail, and many more! The most iconic bird in my opinion would probably be the Turkey Vulture. When most people think of deserts they tend to think of these buzzards flying around. A link for the complete list of birds is posted below.
