The outstanding biodiversity of the Gila National Forest and Wilderness provides for a remarkably varied bird fauna. Over 100 bird species are common to the area, and you might get lucky and experience a rare sighting. Birders come to this region in the hopes of checking the Montezuma quail or the Zone-tailed hawk off their life list. During the summer, you may very likely be buzzed by a Rufous or Broad-tailed hummingbird near the Visitor Center.
