Southern Arizona’s Specialty Birds

January 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm MST


$30 Non-Member / $24 Member

Elegant Trogon. Montezuma Quail. Rose-throated Becard. These are just a few of the birds that have made southern Arizona world famous in the birding community. In this class we take a look at the birds that have made southern Arizona one of the premier birding areas in North America, including when and where to find these feathered gems.
