Here are lists of the birds and mammals we saw or heard on the Tropical Audubon Society southeast Arizona trip. Names in parenthesis indicate selected potential splits.

If the order seems a little strange, it's because it is my own interpretation of current information about what the taxonomic order should be (TiF Checklist). However, I have followed the AOU on species boundaries. If you want the AOU-style version, click here.
