Tucson Audubon Society: Identification of Southeast Arizona’s Spring Migrant Raptors
The riparian corridors of southeast Arizona have been discovered as excellent places to view migrating raptors as they return from their wintering grounds.
Spring is one of the best times of year to see large concentrations of raptors, especially some of the southwest “specialties” like the Common Black Hawk, Gray Hawk, and Zone-tailed Hawk. The identification presentation will commence with an introduction to key terminology and recognition of the GISS, or shape and form, of raptors by species and genera, then will delve into the identification of our migrating raptors. This presentation is not intended to be all inclusive, rather it will focus on the plumages and nuances of the “top 10” raptors you could see.
