Aside from the Amazon Rain Forest, Tucson has more bird species to observe than any other place on earth. No wonder then that the most comprehensive bird count in the world is here in Tucson. Hundreds of volunteers track the multitude of species. We have a variety of elevations, mild seasons, and many migratory flyways. Go birding! For more info, click here.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
