Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Honey Bee Canyon Park Field Trip

Join Gerry Hodge for a trip to this under-birded and hidden park in Oro Valley.

Fall migrants, like Western Tanager and Lazuli Bunting, are beginning to come through and we will look for usual desert inhabitants, like the range-restricted Gilded Flicker. We will also check out a large rock with Indian petroglyphs. Most of the walking will be in soft sand, but it could be wet in places this time of year so please be prepared. Drive time to meeting location from festival venue is about 45 minutes, specific meeting instructions will be emailed beforehand.  Limited to 10 participants.

  • 6:30am – 8:30am
  • $10/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Moderate (Some mild slopes, most of walking in soft sand)


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