cactus wrenOur birds add song to Tucson's desert areas. Many species of birds live year-round or migrate into our area. For example, most Mourning Doves live here year-round, whereas the White-winged Dove migrates into Tucson from Mexico during the spring and summer to take advantage of the blooming and fruiting of the Saguaro.
