Arizona Birding
updated: Dec 01, 2012, 4:30 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

Coronado National Forest, Portal, AZ, is 60 miles from the border with Mexico. Birding is often a 'tropical' surprise, such as seeing Elegant Trogons. This is one of the most spectacular birding sites anywhere. One catch...there are drug runners (guys with backpacks full of you-know-what) and armed, you might run across. This jaring sign shouts the warning.

I'm glad the jarring sign shouted it's warning at you as I couldn't tell what it said from the photo even after enlarging it.

What did it say, btw?

I have never seen a red bird like that before. Thanks for sharing!

Lots of birding festivals in AZ during the wintering season for migrant birds--they like it where its warmer too, just like the "snowbirds" in the RV's.

Is the gray hawk still hanging around Carp?

I'm not the OP but saw the sign a few months ago and it says " Travel Caution, Smuggling and Illegal Immigration may be encountered in this area" I also took a picture of it.
Also the Gray Hawk is still being seen along Santa Claus Ln. as of this morning.
