Part of the Southeast Arizona Birding Festival
At the mouth of Madera Canyon the grassland/riparian habitat around Proctor Road has an easy nature trail where we’ll search for Brown-crested Flycatcher, Bell’s Vireo, Blue Grosbeak, Summer Tanager, and Varied Bunting.
We’ll also be looking and listening for singing sparrows, soaring Zone-tailed Hawks, and buzzing Broad-billed Hummingbirds. Drive time to meeting location from festival venue is about 60 minutes, specific meeting instructions will be emailed beforehand. Limited to 6 participants during each time slot.
