Clifton’s unique setting in a canyon surrounding a year-round river provides prime habitat for a wide variety of birds. From northern cardinals and red-tailed hawks to cliff wrens and great blue herons, Clifton is one of the finest areas for seeing a surprising diversity of our feathered friends.

And now, with a series of three beautiful and easy-to-access riverside nature trails, seeing Clifton’s birds is better than ever. Check out the Greenlee County Birding website for maps, brochures and a list of what you can expect to see when you head out on the trails.

When it comes to birding, Clifton is the place to be!
