Difficulty: Moderate (Some walking on mild slopes, and possibly rocky/uneven surfaces)

Our skulky sparrows come to life during the monsoon season in southeast Arizona, and species such as Botteri’s, Cassin’s and Grasshopper’s can be identified readily if you are familiar with their appearance and vocalizations and there is no better learning experience than in the field. We’ll be sure to look for other grassland specialists as well. Limited to 9 participants.
