Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Patagonia-Sonoita Creek Preserve Field Trip

The preserve is one of the best known U.S. birding hotspots with tall cottonwoods and willows lining a perennial stream.

Open fields, mesquite bosque and a cienega compound the habitat diversity that make it a birding paradise. Listen for the Gray Hawk’s whistle in the cottonwoods while looking for Common Ground Dove, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Thick-billed Kingbird, and more. Nature Conservancy fees are included in the price. Be prepared to wear chigger protection. Limited to 9 participants.

  • 6:00am – 12:30pm
  • $65/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Moderate (Some walking on mild slopes, but still on excellent surfaces. Drive time to location approximately one hour on mostly paved roads)
