Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Birding with a Purpose: Harshaw Creek and Mining Field Trip

Combine birding and conservation as we explore the unique Patagonia Mountains.

Harshaw Creek is lined with Sycamores making it a great location for woodpeckers, flycatchers, tanagers, and more. Elegant Trogons breed through here and Mexican Jays are common in the oaks. We’ll learn about the threat of 21st century industrialized mining in this biologically diverse area identified by scientists as one of the areas most in need of protection for species survival. Concludes with a lunch provided by the local Gathering Grounds at the Paton Center for Hummingbirds. Limited to 8 participants.

  • 6:00am – 2:00pm
  • Difficulty: 2 (Some mild slopes–mostly flat ground and good surfaces. Drive time about 85 minutes to destination.)


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