Maricopa Audubon Society Birds in Maricopa County

Welcome to Maricopa Audubon Society (MAS), a chapter of the National Audubon Society in the Phoenix metropolitan area with 2,500 members.

Unfortunately our website is a bit broken and we are in the proces of fixing it. Please forgive this temporary inconvenience.

Though southeast Arizona is the most well-known Arizona region for birds, many of the same species are found in the Phoenix area. In recent years, we have sighted the Roseate Spoonbill, Brown Thrasher and other unusual species.

A Maricopa Audubon Society Success Story
The Salt River above Granite Reef Dam

Verde Salt Confluence.  The Salt River above Granite ReefThis proposed site of the Orme Dam would have flooded miles of critical riparian habitat on the Salt and Verde Rivers. Today, it is home to desert-nesting Bald Eagles and hundreds of other species of birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, amphibians, arthropods, and plants that depend on this endangered riverine ecosystem. Maricopa Audubon was instrumental in stopping the dam project. In the background is Red (Sawik) Mountain, on lands of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.
