Field Guide to the Birds of Rancho Lobos

Rancho Lobos - Birds

Rancho Lobos comprises over 23,000 Hectares of natural Sonoran Desert habitat. Ranging from the bast planes of the La Arivaipa plateau, ideal for grazing, to the hills of Sierra Lobos home of the Big Horn Sheep.

Rancho Lobos reminds you that it is very important to contribute with the program for bird sightings "eBirds", in cooperation with Audubon, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and CONABIO, thus, we encourage everyone to report their local bird observations to eBirds. Birds that have been identified within Rancho Lobos can be reported and/or researched by checking the location of Los Lobos Sonora, México.
