As the weather warms up, the birds come out. Why Arizona is one of the best places to see them

Birding is the art of spotting and identifying an array of bird species as they migrate and nest in the area. And it turns out, Arizonans live in a very good part of the world for birding, and this is one of the best times of year to get out there and find a painted bunting.

If you don't know what that is, Jennie MacFarland can explain.

MacFarland is a bird conservation biologist with the Tucson Audubon Society.

The Show spoke with her to learn all about birding in Arizona, and how you can get involved.
