Tucson Bird Count

tucson_bird_countThe Tucson Bird Count is now being coordinated by the Tucson Audubon Society in partnership with University of Arizona.

The full Tucson Bird Count website can be found at

Any birder that can readily identify the birds of Tucson is invited to adopt a route to survey. It only takes one morning of your choice between April 15–May 15 to conduct 5 minute counts at each of the stops along your route. Many of the routes are in urban Tucson and don’t require any hiking, you can easily drive from point to point. Other routes are in more natural areas and some points on the route do require some hiking. There are even a few routes that are only hiking.

If you are familiar with most of Tucson’s bird species and are interested in helping with the Tucson Bird Count, please contact Jennie MacFarland at
