Welcome to the Arizona Field Ornithologists (AZFO) Website. AZFO was founded in 2005 by a group of field ornithologists who believed that Arizona, one of the premier ornithological destinations in the country, should have an active and professional ornithological organization to support and encourage the study and knowledge of Arizona's birds. Our mission statement as adopted in 2005 is as follows:

Arizona Field Ornithologists is an organization of birders and ornithologists dedicated to increasing the knowledge of the identification, status, and distribution of Arizona’s birdlife.

To support our organization’s mission statement, we implemented many great programs. The Arizona Birds Online journal, our flagship project has been well received. The thorough peer-review process and quality of articles is evident. The journal includes a broad array of subjects from bird identification challenges and status and distribution changes, to bird finding in less frequently visited locations of the state.  Our photo documentation site is very popular and provides a user friendly way of documenting many of Arizona's rarest species. Besides being a great way to learn about these species, each page has useful status and distribution information. The photo documentation project was also instrumental in providing a mechanism for AZFO to collaborate with the Arizona Bird Committee (ABC). AZFO has also implemented a sound recording library.  This sound library offers hundreds of high quality recordings for personal and educational use and is an incredible tool and service to field ornithologists. Seasonal reports are posted quarterly. These comprehensive reports, supplemented by the reports database, provide an in-depth and long-term searchable knowledge base of Arizona's dynamic bird populations. Our field expeditions have proven to be both fun and functional. These expeditions are successful in targeting specific areas where more information about locations or species is needed.

These are just a few of the things we are doing at AZFO. We encourage you to peruse our website where you will find more projects and a wealth of information about Arizona birds. While exploring our website, please note that for this organization to continue flourishing,  we need many active and dedicated members from throughout the state to take part and support our organization. So please  join AZFO today and connect with us in our quest to better understand Arizona’s avian world.
