BIRDS OF ARIZONA
The following photos were taken at various places in Arizona. The birds (except for the parakeets) are all natives of Arizona. The sites include the Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson; The Nature Conservancy Reserve in Patagonia, AZ; The Sweetwater Marsh in Tucson, which is the tertiary waste water treatment area for Tucson's waste water and a rich site for water fowl; and our backyard.
