Learn About Birds
Let Tucson Audubon teach you about the amazing birds of southeast Arizona! We offer a variety of classes and workshops throughout the year, allowing you to learn in a classroom environment and then take your new knowledge out into the field for a test run with our instructors. Learn directly from expert local birders including Homer Hansen, Lynn Hassler, Carol Vleck and more.
Our Living With Nature Monthly Programs will round out your experience with additional opportunities to learn from local experts about a variety of bird and birding topics. If you’re still needing help with some of our local birds, go to our Tucson Meet Your Birds section and find a wealth of information on some of the special birds we have in southeast Arizona.
In these pages you’ll also find resources describing threats to birds, a FAQ page about birds (questions we always get asked!), and a list of helpful links to other great websites.
