Tucson Audubon Society: Looking for Becards
Part of the Southeast Arizona Birding Festival
An easy stroll through this lush riparian corridor along the Santa Cruz provides many opportunities for migrants, Gray Hawks, flycatchers, and hordes of Yellow-breasted Chats.
Rose-throated Becard, whose nests look like a large football hanging from the end of a branch, have nested along this trail the past few years. Drive time to meeting location from festival venue is about 60 minutes, specific meeting instructions will be emailed beforehand. Limited to 6 participants.
All Van Trips depart from the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at Reid Park.
