Local Birding Guides for Hire

If you are looking to hire a local birding guide, you have come to the right place! As a service to the birding community, Tucson Audubon refers local guides who we know to be knowledgeable and reputable. These local guides and guide companies support Tucson Audubon as partners in our efforts to serve the community through environmental conservation, education, and recreational programs.
 

These referrals are not vetted by Tucson Audubon with regard to permitting or insurance. Tucson Audubon takes no responsibility for the guided trip that is chosen. When hiring a local birding guide, check that they have the required materials in place to operate on public lands managed by the National Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, or other agencies (permits, liability insurance, etc.). You may also want to ask the guide to provide you with references. Some guides may use recorded bird calls; please check with your guide in advance if this is a concern to you.


Guides who are members of the Tucson Audubon Birds Benefit Business Alliance are indicated with a logo below. If you're looking for accommodations or other services, please visit our Birds Benefit Business Alliance Members list.
