Birding Tucson’s Loop Pathway: Birds-of-Prey Edition

Urban open spaces, like Tucson’s Loop, have become havens for wintering birds due to diverse habitats and food sources. Many of our wintering and resident birds should be present in November, so let’s see what we can find!

We’ll start at The Loop parking area at the corner of Glenn and Sahuara, and work our way westward, birding at least three areas with driving in between. We’ll end near the Tucson Racquet Club by late morning. Of course, we’ll experience whatever birds we encounter, but birds of prey will be a focus. (A statement sure to jinx us!)

Walking will be on pavement or graded paths for short periods, but we will be moving quickly. Most of our birding will be along The Loop, so we will have to be diligent of the cyclists, and be ready to step off the path as needed. While it would be great to accommodate a larger number of clients, our party has to be kept smaller for safety.

Bring your optics of choice, appropriate footwear, along with snacks and water. There are public facilities available at many locations.

Final meeting instructions will be emailed to participants prior to the trip.

Limited to 8 people.
