Tips for birding Kaibab Plateau
An extensive network of roads crisscross the Kaibab Plateau, allowing the adventurous birder access to nearly unlimited hiking opportunities. Along with endemic Kaibab Squirrels, the Plateau is home to one of the densest populations of Northern Goshawks in North America. Dusky Grouse are present but difficult to see. Common breeders include American Three-Toed Woodpecker (listen for the distinctive drum), Williamson’s Sapsucker, Grace’s Warbler, Dusky Flycatcher, Townsend’s Solitaire, Clark’s Nutcracker, Cassin’s Finch, and many others. Swainson’s Hawks breed in extensive meadows. Much of the forest here burned in the Warm Fire of 2006 – check for bluebirds and woodpeckers in the burns – but this affected mostly the northern forests of the Plateau. Note that AZ-67 is closed in winter.
