Kofa Queen Canyon

Common Poorwill

Common Poorwill

North of Yuma is the wild and scenic Kofa National Wildlife Refuge. An inhospitable place much of the year, it comes alive with bird song and color in the springtime--and especially after a wet winter. Here is the best spot in Yuma County to find Elf Owl, Curve-billed Thrasher, Rufous-crowned & Black-chinned Sparrows, and Canyon Towhee. You can find a bird-finding guide here, and find a host of bird, flower, and scenic photos here.
