This three-day-long birding workshop in partnership with Tucson Audubon Society is designed for “Southeast Arizona Birding Festival” participants looking for insight into the ecological factors shaping the distribution and population dynamics of avian communities in Southeastern Arizona.  Most of our time will be spent in the Chiricahua Mountains, the largest and most biologically diverse of the isolated sierras locally known as “Sky Islands.”  Drawing species from six North American bio-geographical regions—three with their locus in Mexico—and spanning five of C. Hart Merriam’s life zones, the Chiricahuas are a living laboratory that supports most of the birds found in the American Southwest.

Leader: Rick Taylor and/or  John Yerger

Cost of a this workshop includes guided birding, all meals, accommodations, entrance fees, and transportation from Tucson, Arizona—$795.

TO REGISTER: Print out a PDF Registration Form or call us at (520) 558-2351.
