Five-striped Sparrow

Click here for tips on how to find over 100 SE Arizona specialty birds
with brief details of status, timing, habitat and location

Status in SE Arizona: Uncommon summer visitor, rare in winter.

Timing: Can occur year round, mostly May-Sep.

Status in USA: Found exclusively in SE Arizona.

Habitat/location: Only reliably seen in summer at California Gulch and possibly a few other less accessible sites nearby. In the summer 2011-13, a couple of pairs inhabited Montosa Canyon, but were often hard to find. A handful of winter records in the usual remote locations, but becoming more regular. It may be a full-time resident in SE Arizona, but very hard to detect in winter.
