Migratory Birds
Southwest Region


Why Birds Matter

Some bird species provide practical solutions to problems, such as the need for insect and rodent control. Others disperse seeds, helping to re-vegetate disturbed areas. Others are pollinators, ensuring that we are graced with flowering plants, trees, and shrubs. Beyond the utilitarian, birds are inspirations for the arts.
