Arizona in Winter

Jan 9 - 13, 2019

 
 
Wanna get away? While the mornings are often chilly in the winter in AZ, the sun will typically warm up the day quickly to a picture perfect 75F!
 
There are several winter specialties that we will be looking for in the Santa Cruz flats: Mountain 
Caracara

Plover, Lark Bunting, Crested Caracara
and Chestnut-collared and McCown's Longspurs. In the grasslands of the San Rafael Valley, we will target the rare Baird's Sparrow. In Patagonia, a Violet-crowned Hummingbird should be at the Paton's feeder. 

We will make a few stops along the Santa Cruz river birding the riparian areas. There are always a few rarities around that we can look for en route. We will also spend half a day in the lower elevations of Madera Canyon, one of the best birding locations in the country.

A highlight of every winter AZ trip are the thrashers, at least most of them! We are hoping to find them nicely teed up and singing. They include LeConte's, Crissal, Bendire's and Curve-billed, while Sage Thrasher is a winter guest and will not be singing.
