Difficulty: 3 (Will include walking through desert with uneven surfaces for <3 miles. Drive time to location ~75 mins)
This area just southeast of Tucson has some of the highest biological diversity in the state but is little visited by birders. Amidst the amazing rolling landscape of Sonoran Desert and grassland we’ll hope to find numerous species characteristic of this rich desert habitat including Gilded Flickers, Bendire’s Thrashers, and Black-throated and Rufous-winged Sparrows. Crested Caracara are known to nest in this area as well. Lunch included. Limited to 8 participants.
