More details about this trip:
From desert basins to sky islands, southeastern Arizona is one of the most biologically diverse areas in North America. This is where the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Deserts come together. This is also where the temperate Rocky Mountains and the subtropical Sierra Madres meet. Southeast Arizona always has something to offer most North American birders.
This diversity of habitat is the reason that this area has more species of birds, mammals, reptiles and insects than any other area in the country. There are 550 species of birds on the Arizona list, and you can always expect a productive trip here. As a testament to the region's diversity, many areas have been identified as “Important Bird Areas” (IBA) by the National Audubon Society.
