Arizona Bird Conservation and Species Checklist

Arizona Birds

Loggerhead Shrike

Loggerhead Shrike

Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Counts show that since 1967, many U. S. birds have declined.  Many of our most familiar bird species have lost at least half their populations.  For example, over the past 50 years, sightings of Loggerhead Shrikes, a common Arizona species, declined by 72 percent.  The Loggerhead Shrike in the photograph is the only one I have seen in 15 years of watching at my location.  (Other photos of birds at Coldwater Farm)

Observers have reported direct connections between bird declines and habitat destruction (farming and building), habitat harvest (logging, livestock grazing, and water diversion), habitat invasions by introduced plant species, and habitat poisoning with pesticides.  These forces are increasing worldwide as humans steadily increase and replace other species.

Arizona Bird Conservation Status

According to the list published by AZGFD, there are 551 bird species and subspecies found in Arizona.  Only 451 of these are regular residents.  AZGFD wildlife biologists conclude that 58% of the regulars are imperiled or vulnerable.  Another 20% are of possible long-term concern.  The U. S. Endangered Species Act (ESA) protects only about 1% of Arizona bird species.

Bird Species Numbers

  • World:  10,000
  • U. S.:  1,000
  • Arizona Total:  551
  • Arizona birds regularly present:  451
  • Arizona regulars of concern (ranked S1 to S3):  260 (58%)
  • Arizona regulars of Possible Long-Term Concern:  (S4):  95 (21%)
  • ESA Arizona regulars Listed Endangered:  6 (1%)
  • ESA Arizona regulars Listed Threatened:  1 (<1%)
  • ESA Arizona regulars of Concern:  26 (6%)
