One of our favorite sites to document birds we observe is You can create your own “bird hot spot” in your neighborhood. As you log sightings, it creates a “distribution” of various bird species and when they come through.

Aviatlas records all data in a scientifically rigorous manner to insure it’s usefulness for future research and studies.

Some of our favorite birding areas in Arizona include Tucson, the Santa Cruz Valley, Cochise County, Payson, and Flagstaff.

They can be very destructive to homes, garages, and it is not uncommon to have them build nests inside car engines and then chew on electrical wiring. The one pictured here was right where we don’t mind having it, out in the desert and enjoying one of the many prickly pear cacti.
