Southwest Wings: Summer Festival Field Trip – T4 Miller Canyon

Join professional guide Ken Blankenship, on an exploration of one of the finest Huachuca Mountain Canyons.

Miller Canyon is known to local birders as a reliable place to find Red-faced Warblers and there may even be a chance of a Mexican Spotted Owl. Other SE Arizona specialties including Arizona Woodpecker, Sulphur-bellied and Dusky-capped Flycatchers, Painted Redstart, Grace’s Warbler and Hepatic Tanager are all found here. This trip includes a visit to the famous hummingbird feeders at Beatty’s B&B where up to 10 species of hummingbirds can be found, including a chance of the rare White-eared Hummingbird. Bring hat, sun protection and wear trail shoes. Bring your own lunch and water. Hiking Difficulty: 4 difficult. Guide Ken Blankenship.

Meeting place: Upper parking lot at Miller Canyon. Drive up Miller Canyon Road, which is rough but very driveable, until you reach the end where there is parking at the entrance to Beatty’s B&B. Map link
