Tucson Audubon Society: Brown Canyon Evening Adventure
Part of the Southeast Arizona Birding Festival
We will take an evening outing to Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge and explore the heart of the Baboquivari Mnts, Brown Canyon, to see if we can hear the rare Buff-collard Nightjars who make a summer home in the canyon.
These elusive nightjars tend to start getting quiet this time of year but we’ll make an effort to add it to our festival species list. Of course there will be other fantastic species to see such as Lesser Nighthawk, Common Poorwill, Ladder-backed Woodpecker, Loggerhead Shrike, Rufous-winged Sparrow, and Northern Cardinal to name a few. Limited to 8 participants.
All Van Trips depart from the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at Reid Park.
A packed lunch, snacks, and drinking water are provided on full-day field trips. A light snack and drinking water are provided on half-day field trips.
