Tucson Audubon Society: Experiencing Sparrows in the Field
Part of the Southeast Arizona Birding Festival
Our skulky sparrows come to life during the monsoon season in southeast Arizona, and species such as Botteri’s, Cassin’s and Grasshopper’s can be identified readily if you are familiar with their appearance and vocalizations.
This field experience dovetails with the classroom workshop offered on Thursday which will introduce you to the breeding sparrows of our region, along with their habitat, identification characteristics, and songs. 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.
