Gila County Birding Areas

This section has a current total of thirteen birding areas.  Because Gila County is under-birded, each birding area will be added to in the future, some areas much more than others.

In addition to what is here, there are four more birding areas that I hope will be added in the future when I can bird them more. 

There are about 140 birding locations described in these 13 birding areas.  A birding location can be described as it's own place or it can be a place good enough that would warrant creating a new list for it and moving on to the next location for a new list of birds seen per site.  Location names that have links on them in dark blue, or if there are dark blue links anywhere in the text, it will take you to the eBird hotspot for whatever location, trail, road, etc.
