WINTER BIRDING IN SE ARIZONA IS GREAT!

November brings us into the start of Winter Birding in SE Arizona.  Our Summer residents have started to head South to warmer habitats, but our many Winter birds are arriving to settle in for a Winter home.  The Sandhill Cranes have returned to Whitewater Draw along with numerous waterfowl.  Our backyard Vermilioin Flycatcher seems to move from the San Pedro River to take up Winter residence at Whitewater Draw as well (not much of a migratory effort!).  Red-tails and Harriers have replaced the now Southbound Swainson's Hawks.  But our owls stick around throughout the year.  Winter features a lot of hawks, owls, and falcons here in SE Arizona.  And the overwintering sparrows and other field birds are abundant.  The crowd of birds at our feeders changes seasonally, and we look forward to seeing the new arrivals daily. 

As you tour SE Arizona from our high prairie grasslands, to mountain canons, and riparian areas, it is probable that you will find well over 150 species in just a few days, without a lot of effort.  Local bird guides can help you find and identify the many types of birds, and guide you to the Winter birding hot-spots.  And as always, the San Pedro River Valley is at the heart of SE Arizona's hottest birding sites.
