Southwest Wings: Summer Festival Field Trip – SA8 Ramsey Canyon

Join professional bird guide, Jennie MacFarland on a visit to the world famous Ramsey Canyon in the Huachuca Mountains.

Owned by The Nature Conservancy, this area has been a hot spot for birding for decades. The lower canyon is good for Montezuma and Gambel’s Quails, Gila and Ladder-backed Woodpeckers, Rufous-crowned, Chipping and Botteri’s Sparrows, Blue and Black-headed Grosbeaks, and other canyon outlet species. Ramsey Canyon is a reliable location to find Arizona and Acorn Woodpeckers, Hepatic Tanager, Grace’s and Red-faced Warblers and Painted Redstart as well as hummingbirds around the information centre. Be prepared for a slow hike covering two miles with a steep 200-foot elevation gain. Bring hat, water, sun protection, and wear trail shoes. Hiking Difficulty: 4 difficult. Guide Jennie MacFarland.

Meeting place: Ramsey Canyon Preserve parking lot, at the top of Ramsey Canyon Road. Map link
