Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Carr & Ash Canyons Field Trip

We’ll get an early start from Tucson to explore the Madrean oak woodland and open pine forests of Carr Canyon.

This scenic canyon on the east flank of the Huachucas supports species such as Arizona Woodpecker and Painted Redstart on its lower slopes, and species such as Olive Warbler, Buff-breasted Flycatcher and Greater Pewee along the upper stretches of the road. We’ll spend a few hours exploring along the main road that winds up to near the peaks of the Huachucas before taking our picnic lunch and then descending to nearby Ash Canyon, where a private bank of hummingbird feeders at Mary Jo’s B&B should be buzzing with activity, including perhaps the range-restricted and very attractive Lucifer Hummingbird. We will be walking slowly along nearly level dirt roads at up to about 7000 feet in elevation. Lunch included. Limited to 16 participants.

  • 5:00am – 3:30pm
  • $110/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Hard (Steeper slopes or more rocky/rooted trails. Drive time to locations approximately 2 hours on very rough road.)

 

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