This site contains collected images, sound
recordings, and explanatory text about Arizona birds. Most of
the material has been gathered during work on the Arizona Breeding
Bird Atlas project (ABBA) administered by Arizona Game and Fish.
A collection is usually a sound recording or photograph, and some
text, that explains the significance of the material presented.
Sometimes both photos and sound recordings are included in the
same collection. This copyrighted material may be freely distributed
for non-commercial purposes so long as mirror-pole.com, and all
