Tucson Audubon Society: Patagonia and Harshaw Canyon
Part of the Southeast Arizona Birding Festival
Some of the most well-known birding locations in Southeast Arizona, and the United States, occur in the riparian area around the small mining town of Patagonia.
We’ll spend a few hours in the low-lying Patagonia Mountains providing us the opportunity to find many birds of oak and mountain riparian habitats for the Sky Islands including Elegant Trogon and the Azure subspecies of Eastern Bluebird. We will also check out the famous Patagonia Roadside Rest and enjoy lunch at the Paton Center for Hummingbirds while looking for Violet-crowned Hummingbird. Lunch included. 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.
