Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Brown Canyon Evening Adventure Field Trip

We will take an evening outing to Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge and explore the heart of the Baboquivari Mnts, Brown Canyon, to see if we can hear the rare Buff-collard Nightjars who make a summer home in the canyon.

These elusive nightjars tend to start getting quiet this time of year but we’ll make an effort to add it to our festival species list. Of course there will be other fantastic species to see such as Lesser Nighthawk, Common Poorwill, Ladder-backed Woodpecker, Loggerhead Shrike, Rufous-winged Sparrow, and Northern Cardinal to name a few. Dinner included. Limited to 8 participants.


  • 5:00pm – 10:00pm
  • $110/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Moderate (Rocky to sandy footing on trails and/or road. Drive time to location approximately 75 minutes)


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