San Pedro River. Birdwatching.

Please note the information on this web site has NOT been updated since 1998. This site should be viewed as an "archived" project that is being provided with complimentary hosting by Mountain Visions.
The San Pedro River, flowing north from Mexico into southern Arizona, is the nation's first designated Riparian National Conservation Area. And it's literally for the birds! Although used by humans for at least 11,000 years, heavy livestock grazing in the last one hundred years threatened the ability of this riparian area to support its wildlife populations. Now, wildlife inventories show one of the highest animal diversity totals in North America. More than 350 species of birds alone attract flocks of birdwatchers who have become big contributors to the local economy, and enthusiastic supporters of this treasured national resource.
