Summary (from publisher):

Southeastern Arizona is recognized as one of America's foremost birding destinations with almost half of all the birds of North America seen in this one area. This pocket-sized photographic guide features 640 stunning color photographs of the over 400 birds of Southeastern Arizona (including the Mexican vagrants) along with their descriptions, locations, elevation charts, and a regional checklist. Authored by lifelong Tucson resident and local bird expert, Rick Taylor, it is the ideal guide for beginning and experienced birdwatchers.

Author Bio:

A lifelong resident of Southeastern Arizona, Rick Taylor conducted an eight-year-long study of the Elegant Trogon that led to the publication of Trogons of the Arizona Borderlands in 1994. During the course of his research he reported the first Eared Quetzal seen in the U.S. In 1980 Rick founded Borderland Tours, a birding travel company dedicated to responsible ecotourism as communities. In 1995 the American Birding Association published his A Birder's Guide to Southeastern Arizona, which he revised in 2005. Taylor is also the author of location bird checklists for both the Huachuca and the Chiricahua Mountains.
