Spring in southeast Arizona is delightful! Almost all of the breeding birds will have arrived and are singing. There will be some stragglers that we will be too early for, but only very few. Spring is the time for owls such as Elf Owl and Whiskered Screech-Owl and warblers such as Olive, Red-faced, Grace’s, and Virginia’s. Of course we hope to see an Elegant Trogon! Montezuma Quail are tricky to see and require some luck. There should be some migration going on as well, so you never know what you are going to see.

We will explore the Sky Islands, with visits to the Santa Cruz and San Pedro River sites, Madera Canyon, and both the Huachuca and Chiricahua Mountains. We will also swing by Willcox to look for waterfowl and shorebirds.
