Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Introduction to Southeast Arizona Tyrant Flycatchers

The largest family of birds in the world, Tyrant Flycatchers, includes an amazing diversity of species. 

Flycatchers regularly pose identification challenges due to similar plumages and overlap with similar species range and habitat.  As part of this workshop, you will learn about useful characteristics and behaviors that aid in flycatcher identification.  This workshop places an emphasis on bill shape and size, wing length, and primary projection in relation to Tyranid genera and species identification.  This workshop will start with an overview of the family characteristic, and then cover flycatchers that might be seen during the festival.

  • 1:30pm – 2:30pm
  • $10/person + Festival Registration

 

All activities (unless otherwise noted) for the Southeast Arizona Birding Festival will be based out of the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Tucson – Reid Park445 South Alvernon Way, Tucson, Arizona, 520-881-4200.
