Birds and Animals of Oak Creek Canyon and Northern Arizona

Oak Creek Canyon is located near Flagstaff and Sedona, Arizona. If you're not familiar with Arizona's different climate zones, you might be surprised to learn that it's not all desert nor all hot. Areas of higher elevation, such as areas on or above the Mogollon Rim (the edge of the Colorado Plateau) are much cooler, temperate zones that host lots of flora and fauna familiar to folks from cooler climates. Some areas even get lots of snow!

This nifty postcard includes a key to identifying the birds and animals on the back:

Thank you for posting the illustrations of Oak Creek Canyon wildlife. My boys are studying the above before we make our yearly visit this spring.

I love the painting, so fantastic. Arizona is a great place to be especially the Apache trail. I would love to start an adventure there together with my friends hopefully within this year.
