Birds abound in Coronado National Memorial. Some varieties are migratory, while others can be seen throughout the year. A bird checklist is available to help identify many of the different species in the memorial. Bring binoculars and plan for a day filled with Mexican jays, hummingbirds, ravens, sparrows, towhees, turkey vultures, and woodpeckers. You might get lucky and see a roadrunner or montezuma quail!
