Meet Our Instructors

Homer Hansen is the author of the G.I.S.S. Series bird identification guides and has been bird watching in the southwest since 1995. Homer is a native of Willcox, Arizona, and is chairman of the annual Wings Over Willcox Birding and Nature Fesitval. He feels fortunate to have grown up surrounded by Sandhill Cranes in winter and Cassin’s Sparrows in summer. Homer has given numerous workshops and tours on raptors, sparrows, flycatchers, warblers, bird vocalizations, and other aspects of bird ecology over the years and is a regular presenter and trip leader for other Arizona birding festivals. He is also the course instructor for the Tucson Audubon Society’s Moving to Mastery birding course and five of our specialty workshops.

Holly Kleindienst is retired from the US Forest Service where she had a fulfilling career as a wildland firefighter and fire manager. Coming from a family of birders and nature enthusiasts, she is a lifelong backyard birder, and outdoor recreationist. Upon inheriting her mother’s quality binoculars in 2012, Holly took up birding in earnest. Most every morning she is out walking and birding to increase her County Year and Life Lists, and her knowledge of local birds. She also birds wherever travels take her which is often to the Caribbean for scuba diving with her husband, George, where they “list” fish as well. Besides leading birding field trips for various organizations, she participates in IBA and other bird surveys including Audubon Christmas Bird Counts. Holly is a great fan of the eBird database, the eBird app, and other mobile birding applications. She is always willing to share how the use of these technologies has enhanced her birding experience.
