Celebrate Birds at the Members’ Holiday Potluck

Thursday, December 12, 6 pm
St. Philip’s in the Hills Episcopal Church MAP
The Santa Cruz: A River of Birds with Nicole Gillett. We welcome all members to join staff for an evening of fellowship, conversation, and a spotlight on the Santa Cruz River. This event is FREE for Tucson Audubon Society members.

Take a virtual journey down Southeast Arizona’s iconic Santa Cruz River. It’s one of the few waterways in the world that runs south, then north, and the only river in the U.S. to cross an international border twice. The forests flanking the Santa Cruz once sheltered beavers and grizzly bears; today the river is a major migration corridor, supporting over 200 bird species including the rare Rose-throated Becard, Gray Hawk, and Yellow-billed Cuckoo. Learn how the river is changing, and how to experience the bird community it supports.

Please indicate whether you will be bringing a salad, appetizer, main dish, dessert, or beverage. In true potluck fashion, and to minimize waste, members are kindly requested to bring your own plates, cups, cutlery, and serving utensils. Simple recipe cards are also appreciated by those with dietary restrictions.

Please RSVP here, or call 520-629-0510 x7002.

Tucson Valley Christmas Bird Count for Kids

Get your kids ages 5 to 18 out birding!

Saturday, December 14 at Reid Park
9 am–12:30 pm

The CBC4KIDS is a FREE annual nationwide winter bird survey designed for family participation. Meet at Ramada #7 on the south side of Reid Park directly next to the playground (click here for map).

Loaner binoculars and field guides will be available for use. Volunteers will be on hand to show kids how to use their binoculars and how to ID a bird, and then we’ll divide into teams for our count. After birding we’ll tally our counts and discuss our bird sightings along with pizza and bird-themed activities! Contact Eric Scheuering (520-209-1808), Education Programs Manager, with questions.

Birding Southeast Arizona App: Now for Android and iOS

A great interactive companion to our Finding Birds in Southeast Arizona, the new Birding Southeast Arizona app is now available for Apple iOS ($9.99) and Android ($7.99) devices. A collaboration between Tucson Audubon and the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory, with funding from the Southeastern Arizona Birding Trail committee, the app covers over 130 birding sites in six subregions in and around Tucson, all vetted by local experts.

The app takes bird-finding in southeast Arizona to the next level:

  • Use GPS to find birding “sites near me”
  • View details and a list of common species for each site
  • Get turn-by-turn directions and find nearby amenities
  • Search all sites for a “target bird,” and find the nearest location
  • Access Audubon’s online bird guide for quick reference in the field
  • Plan your next trip by searching for sites near a city or ZIP code
  • Tag your favorite spots and share with your friends
  • Track and log your sightings and share custom sighting maps with your friends via Facebook

Proceeds benefit the education, research, and conservation programs of the Tucson Audubon Society and the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory.
