Southwest Wings: Spring Fling Field Trip – W2 Carr Canyon

Join professional guide, Kristy Gallo, on this tour of Carr Canyon, beginning in the lower canyon, where we will look for Gambel’s Quail, Rufous-crowned, Chipping and Botteri’s Sparrows, Blue and Black-headed Grosbeaks, and other canyon outlet species.

We may stop at the Carr House Nature Center to check the hummingbird feeders. Venturing to the top of Carr Canyon, we may see up to six species of hummingbirds, as well as Arizona, Gila and Acorn Woodpeckers, Buff-breasted Flycatcher, Grace’s and Olive Warblers, Painted Redstart, Yellow-eyed Junco, Hepatic Tanager, Scott’s Oriole and other mountain and canyon specialties. Be prepared for a slow walk covering a mile or two with a 200ft elevation gain and uneven terrain. This trip is best suited for intermediate birders.

Bring hat, water, sun protection, and wear comfortable, sturdy trail shoes.  Lunch is included. Hiking Difficulty: 3 moderate with elevation. Guide Kristy Gallo.
