Birds sing their Spring songs in Tucson, Arizona

Spring is in the air

Originally uploaded by SearchNetMedia

Spring is in the air in Tucson. The birds are putting on their best shows. They seem to be flying in pairs and singing often with unique melodies. Thrashers, Northern Mockingbirds, Phainopepla, Pyrrhuloxia, Northern Cardinal, Mourning Doves, Cactus Wren, Goldfinch, and so many more are singing their best songs. Hummingbirds are whistling away in their high-pitched songs. Even the bats are back at night.

We are seeing birds building nests, specifically, Cactus Wren and Phainopepla with mouthfuls of nest material. The owls are singing their songs at night too.

Today an Abert’s Towhee flew in after a long absence. Glad to see them back. We look forward to documenting the migrating birds to Tucson’s Catalina Foothills on

If you enjoy birding, it is a great time to visit Tucson, the rest of the Santa Cruz Valley, and Cochise County.
