Birding Cave Creek Canyon, Arizona by Chris Cunningham and Elisa Lewis
Cave Creek Canyon (CCC) in the Chiricahuas of southeast Arizona is one of the great birding meccas of the United States. Especially known for its diversity and abundance of hummingbirds, CCC is one of the great migratory pathways for Neotropical migrant songbirds entering the West and contains birds and other biota from the surrounding deserts, grasslands, and Madrean Highlands (Sky Islands). Since they first visited CCC about five years ago, Chris and Elisa have been drawing up plans to visit as often as possible and ultimately wish to retire to this area. Although they have much yet to learn, join this husband/wife photo-birding team at they relate some of their first avian encounters in this incredible area.
Chris Cunningham, Ph.D. is a geologist and biologist by training and currently teaches physics. Elisa Lewis is a biologist by training and works as an Education Specialist.
