Difficulty: Moderate (May include some walking on steeper slopes or rocky/rooted trails.)
Tucson has an amazing variety of habitats within a short distance. Driving only 30 miles, we’ll travel the ecological equivalent of going from Mexico to Canada. Working our way up the Catalina Mountains, we’ll sample each ecological zone for its own special birds. With luck, we can see over 100 birds in a day. We’ll stop for lunch at a mountain restaurant (The Iron Door) surrounded by hummingbird feeders. This will be a series of short drives and short, easy walks. Leader is a long time local birder and Tucson Audubon Board member who lives at the base of the Catalinas. Lunch included. Limited to 8 participants.
