Birds in Southeast Arizona
I had no idea there was such a variety of birds in southeast Arizona. I’m not a birder by any means, I prefer to think of myself as a wildlifer. Any and all wildlife are what I like to see, and photograph. This part of Arizona is pretty well known for all the different areas were birds hang out though. Generally it’s higher elevation were you can find these places, and they are sometimes referred to as sky islands. The places we have gone are also noted bird conservation areas, and areas of importance for the birds.
Vermillion Flycatcher. Can’t miss these little guys, so bright and colorful.
We went to a birding area near Patagonia Lake. I’m sure that more towards spring we would have seen a lot more birds. But, we did get to see a few of the year round residents.
