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

This is the top eBird hotspot in the state with lake, riparian, and upland desert/grassland habitat affording the chance for a number of target species of lower elevations. 

Early walking along the birding trail, we hope to find Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet, Bell’s Vireo, Bridled Titmouse, and Lucy’s Warbler, eventually heading for the inlet creek where we might possibly find Green Kingfisher—one can hope!  Scanning the lake, there are Mexican Ducks along with other species, as well as Neotropic Cormorants, and shorebirds at the dam area.  Afterwards, time-permitting, a stop at the famous Roadside Rest will provide opportunity for both Thick-billed Kingbird and Varied Bunting. Limited to 9 participants.


  • 5:00am – 12:30pm
  • $70/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Moderate (Will include walking along mostly level trail but with uneven surfaces for around 2 miles, one area with steep stairs.  Drive time to location about 80 minutes)


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