Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Arivaca Cienega Area Field Trip

Just outside of the small town of Arivaca is the Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge where efforts to re-introduce the Masked Bobwhite are being undertaken by a group of partners, including Tucson Audubon.

We’ll focus our birding efforts at the Arivaca Cienega and along the Arivaca Creek where we’ll look for Black Vultures, Gray and Zone-tailed Hawks, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Tropical Kingbird, and buntings. Limited to 9 participants.

  • 5:00am–12:00pm
  • $65/person + Festival Registration

Difficulty: Moderate (mostly flat walking trails on some uneven and rocky terrain. Drive time to Arivaca is about 75 minutes.)


Van Trips depart from the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at Reid Park.
