Class: Birding the Calendar–Where to Go Birding in October | Instructor: Luke Safford
Register Here
One of the most common questions we get asked is “When is the best time to go birding in Southeast Arizona?” Well, it’s hard to pinpoint a best month, because there is something unique during every season! In October we can finally look forward to some “cooler” weather, the return of wintering sparrows, and some lingering fall migrants.

Wednesday, September 22, 11am–12pm
Presentation: Alaska, Birding on the Edge | Presenter: Brian Zwiebel
Register Here
Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime as you join Brian at the 5 far-flung destinations he has visited in Alaska. Brian has spent over 17 weeks in Alaska spanning 7 epic trips to last frontier. This program will explore the birds and logistics of visiting off-the-beaten path locations such as Utquiagvik (Barrow), Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Dutch Harbor and the Baby Islands, Nome, and the Pribilof Islands including both St. Paul and St. George islands. We’ll discover all four eiders, the three Jaegers, three species of loons, seabirds galore, a plethora of shorebirds and so much more. Speaking of the shorebirds, Alaska is where many species come to breed and rear young. You will see why Brian really fell in love with shorebirds on his first trip to Barrow and after this program you may never look at them the same way again. One thing is for sure, if you ever visit Alaska you will do everything in your power to arrange a return trip!

Monday, September 27, 7pm – 8pm

Maybe some of you have been lucky enough to locate a few of these species and you’ll be invited to share your story and a picture if you have one.

Interactive Class: Tips on Identifying Birds | Host: Luke Safford
Register Here
Have you ever spotted an interesting bird only to become frustrated because you can’t figure out what kind of species it is? We’ve all been there! Let’s move from being frustrated to finding enjoyment in the process of identification. You will be encouraged to send pictures to Luke ahead of time to be used in the class so that we can work through the identification process together with real life bird ID issues.
