Although Tucson is bordered by outstanding natural areas such as Saguaro National Park and the Coronado National Forest, you need not leave the city to see a variety of typical desert birds. 
  Here at Desert Dove Bed and Breakfast you will see these beautiful cardinals. They are at the feeder every morning and throughout the day. The blaze of red color is a wonderful contrast to the sage green of the desert. Check out our birds photo gallery page to see many more desert bird. The photos were taken by John & Maggie Turner while staying at Desert Dove Bed & Breakfast.

Below is a list of birds seen by our guests while at Desert Dove Bed & Breakfast:

Gambel Quail, White-winged Dove, Morning Dove, Inca Dove, Roadrunner, Say’s Phoebe, Broad-billed Hummingbird, Anna’s Hummingbird, Flicker, Red-naped Sapsucker, Gila Woodpecker, Ash-throated Flycatcher, Western Kingbird, Cactus Wren, Curved Bill Thrasher, Northern Mockingbird, Phainopepla , Lucy’s Warbler, Black-headed Grosbeak, Pyrrhuloxia, Northern Cardinal, Chipping Sparrow, White Crowned Sparrow, House Sparrow, Black-throated Sparrow, Hooded Oriole, Yellow-headed Blackbird, Goldfinch, House Finch, Cooper’s Hawk, Elf Owl, Great Horned Owl and the Brown Bat, to name a few.
