      Sign displaying some of the common local wildlife at Tonto Natural Bridge State Park in my state of Arizona. I was there on a hot summer afternoon (worst time for wildlife viewing) and yet I managed to see three of the species on this list (raven, javelina, coue's deer). Over the years I believe I have seen all of these species in the wild in Arizona except for cedar waxwing. (Edit - maybe not raccoon either in Arizona, though seen elsewhere).

      One species not listed here that is prominent in the visitor center displays is white-nosed coati. According to staff, they were being seen frequently on the cliffs across the stream from visitor up until three weeks before my visit.

      Followup - I remembered I have seen raccoon in Arizona. It was in the savanna exhibit at Phoenix Zoo during a summer night opening.
