Notes:
The Chiricahua Mountains, located in Cochise County in the southeastern corner of Arizona, supports a fascinating and beautiful outlier of the Sierra Madrean flora and fauna of northeastern Mexico. It has long been recognized as a mecca for those interested in natural history, in some substantial part due to a continuous stream of publications, seminars, and graduate student activities centering at the Southwestern Research Station in Cave Creek Canyon on the eastern side of the mountains, a facility administered by the Entomology Department of the American Museum of Natural History. The avifauna and vegetational components of these woodlands were beautifully described in a now classic study by Joe T. Marshall, Birds of Pine-Oak Woodland in Southern Arizona and adjacent Mexico, which has happily been made available as a pdf file by its publisher, the Cooper Ornithological Society, and SORA, the Searchable Ornithological Research Archive.
