Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Catalina State Park Field Trip

This state park on the northwest side of Tucson sits adjacent to the western slopes of the Coronado National Forest’s Santa Catalina Mountains and contains a good mixture of desert scrub, mesquite bosque, and riparian vegetation.

These habitats support a varied mix of bird species including Brown-crested Flycatcher, Rufous-winged Sparrow, and Northern Cardinals. We will explore the Birding Trail which crosses a seasonal wash and depending on monsoon storms you may get your boots wet. $7 parking fee. Drive time to meeting location from festival venue is about 40 minutes, specific meeting instructions will be emailed beforehand. Limited to 10 participants.

 

  • 6:30am – 9:00am
  • $15/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Moderate (Some mild slopes, but still on excellent surfaces.)

 

“Drive Yourself” field trips will meet on-site at birding locations and you will received detailed directions.
