Tucson's Backyard Birds

For those of you new to the Tucson area or to the backyard bird feeding hobby, below are some of the more common birds you may see in your backyard. These birds are frequent visitors to seed and nectar feeders, some are insect eaters, and you may see some of them scurrying across the ground. Place your cursor over the picture to discover the name of the bird. (Thanks to Farrish Sharon for some of these photos)
