Birding by Habitat

Southeastern Arizona offers such excellent birding opportunities in part because of its variety of habitats.  Experience the fun of birding in three different natural environments, Sonoran desert, riparian, and sky island. Maximum 12 people.

Field trips:
  • April 8 – Catalina State Park, 7–11:00 a.m.
  • April 15 – San Pedro River, 7 a.m.–3 p.m.
  • April 22 – Mt. Lemmon, 7 a.m.–3 p.m.

Cost: $175 for members, $210 for non-members


Birding by Ear

Learn to use your ears as much as (if not more than) your eyes while birding your favorite destinations. This class will delve into the world of bird vocalizations and give you a framework for learning the voices of our master singers. The evening classroom session will introduce you to sonograms and vocalization types, as well as work on comparisons between similar sounding Arizona species. The field trip will give students a chance to use these skills in the field. Vocalizations will be recorded and brought back to the classroom to analyze.
