Species List


We will update this list regularly so you will always know what birds, mammals and reptiles we are seeing at Desert Photo Retreat. Birds, mammals and reptiles are listed alphabetically. When we have a species with multiple varieties they will be listed by species first. So all the Orioles will be under O, Finches under F, etc. If we only have one variety it will be found under its common name alphabetically.
