Addendum to Finding Birds in SE Arizona Revised 8th Edition (2015)

On this page we do not list all information about all birding sites in southeast Arizona.
Instead, we list sites for which there have been changes since the 2015 publication of the Revised 8th edition of Tucson Audubon’s Finding Birds in Southeast Arizona. For complete birding information on southeast Arizona, consult that book (available online from the Tucson Audubon Nature Shop). Check this page often for any changes that may have occurred since that publication date.

Fort Huachuca – Pg 161 (August 2015)

Beginning 3 August 2015, visitors, contractors and vendors 18 years and older, entering Fort Huachuca, who do not have a DoD identification card, will be subject to a background check before being allowed entry to the installation. Those who present a common access card (CAC card), Military ID, Military Dependent ID, Gold Star ID, or other valid DoD credential won’t be affected. This is to ensure that Fort Huachuca is in compliance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12, which requires that 100 percent of visitors be vetted prior to entering the installation. While this is a DoD-wide initiative, we are doing all we can to streamline the process for accessing Fort Huachuca yet ensure the safety and security of the installation.

Real ID info: Ft.Huachuca DOES NOT accept all US driver’s licenses for entry into the fort.

There are five states thatdo not meet the federal standards for a “REAL ID:: New Mexico, Minnesota,Illinois, Missouri, and Washington. If you plan on going to Ft.Huachuca to bird, and you are from a non-compliant state, you will need an additional form of acceptable ID such as a Passport.

IMPORTANT: Ft. Huachuca has posted information on new access requirements on its official webpage at – look for the “Gate Information” tab on the left side of the homepage. Read the information at the “Visitors Access” button. If you click the “Installation Access Forms” button, you can see the information you’ll have to provide to get access.
