Reaching nearly 400 miles in each of the cardinal directions, with an extraordinary range of more than 12,000 feet of elevation in between, Arizona is home to birds otherwise typical of the Mexican highlands, the Canadian Rockies, and the Great Plains grasslands, an exceedingly diverse avifaunal mix that guarantees exciting birding anywhere in the state at any season.
