Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – The Birds of New Zealand – 6 Endemic Families and so Much More

An illustrated introduction to the unique birds of New Zealand. There are 6 endemic families in addition to many other unique birds and a multitude of seabirds. For example, the Wrybill is a shorebird which has a laterally curved bill – it is the ONLY bird in the World that has that. Only 20 years ago New Zealand Storm-petrel was rediscovered after 150 years – and it breeds almost within eye-sight of the largest city – Auckland! There are many other strange and interesting birds – like a carnivorous, Alpine parrot, or the only mainland colony of albatross in the World.

  • 12:00pm – 1:00pm

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.
