by Richard Cachor Taylor. A compact, photographic field guide for southeastern Arizona, a birding mecca for rare and vagrant birds from Mexico. Over 410 species, including the Mexican rarities.
Over 600 stunning color photographs, most by regional photographers, illustrate the birds. Organized in our best-selling format: Description, Similar Species, Voice, Status, Habitat, Behavior and Noteworthy. The unique ten habitats of southeastern Arizona are described in six pages along with a Habitat Map. Unique color-coded elevation charts make it easy for amateur and expert birdwatchers to know what seasons, elevations and locations are typical for the birds. A Quick Guide to Local Birds, at the front of the book, provides an easy reference to the pages that provide a complete description of the different birds.
