Though southeast Arizona is the most well-known Arizona region for birds, many of the same species are found in the Phoenix area. In recent years, we have sighted the Roseate Spoonbill, Brown Thrasher and other unusual species.
Maricopa Audubon Society is an
organization of volunteers dedicated to the
enjoyment of birds and other wildlife with a primary
focus on the protection and restoration of the
