American Wigeon by Stephen Nelson

Relaxed Afternoon Birding at Fort Lowell Park

Registration for this trip is free. Register here beginning on Nov 12, 7 AM.

Trip Easy: Walk 1-2 miles on level grass, paved and dirt paths.

This trip is intended for people new to birding or for birders from other regions who want to learn some of the common birds in the Sonoran Desert. We’ll practice identifying birds by shape, sound, color, and behavior and will discuss the connections between the birds and their habitats. We’ll focus more on enjoying the birds that show up rather than on a long list of birds. Participants will be introduced to some helpful resources for getting started with desert birding.

Beginners and young people are welcome. Meet at the tables under the ramada at the north end of the parking lot, near the old fort. Limited to 10 participants. Binoculars will be provided for those who request them.
