Difficulty: Moderate (some mild slopes–mostly flat ground and some loose sand in the wash)

This park in northwest Tucson near Catalina State Park became famous a few years ago for the appearance of a Fan-tailed Warbler. While we most likely won’t see one of those, we can expect to come across a variety of Arizona specialties including Ladder-backed Woodpecker, Phainopepla, Rufous-winged Sparrow, and Canyon Towhee. Drive time to the meeting location from the festival venue is about 45 minutes, specific meeting instructions will be emailed beforehand. Limited to 10 participants.
