Hummingbirds, breeding birds and vagrants from south of the border...

Some of the most beautiful canyons in North America: Madera, Ramsey, Miller, and spectacular Cave Creek Canyon, with their incredible birds, breathtaking beauty, and scenery extraordinaire.

Sonoita Creek Sanctuary, Patagonia Lake, San Pedro Riparian Natural Area, and Mount Lemmon, towering high above Tucson.

Willcox Twin Lakes, an oasis for ducks, grebes, terns, gulls, and shorebirds, including dozens of spinning Wilson’s Phalaropes, in the middle of the desert!

And what would an Arizona Tour be without birding a few sewage ponds? On past tours they have yielded Red Knot, Brown Pelican, Western Gull, Elegant Tern, Least Grebe, Purple Gallinule, White Ibis, Roseate Spoonbill, Reddish Egret, and Tricolored Heron, plus lots of shorebirds and waterfowl, all at sewage ponds and associated wetlands. Very nice birds for Arizona!
