Winter Raptor Escape to Southeast Arizona

Undoubtedly, you’ve heard of the amazing birding to be experienced throughout the ‘Sky Islands’ region of southeastern Arizona. Garnering most of the attention are Mexican species that occur nowhere else in the continental US, notably hummingbirds, trogons and flycatchers. Most birders venture to this striking landscape during the spring and late summer, when monsoon rains usher in a ‘second spring’ that supports an incredible avian diversity. Often overlooked – but just as spectacular – is the winter season, when large numbers of raptors inhabit the sea of open country surrounding the Sky Island mountain ranges.

On this new HMANA trip, our search for winter raptors will take us to the Santa Cruz Flats, Las Cienegas NCA, San Rafael Valley, San Pedro River RNCA and Sulphur Springs Valley. Species we hope to encounter include Ferruginous Hawk, Harris’s Hawk, Red-tailed Hawk (many morphs and subspecies), White-tailed Kite, Prairie and Peregrine Falcon, Burrowing Owl, Short-eared Owl, Golden and Bald Eagle and Merlin (all three subspecies are possible). We will keep a watch out for uncommon species including Zone-tailed Hawk, Gray Hawk, Rough-legged Hawk, Short-tailed Hawk and Western and Whiskered-Screech Owl as we pursue and photograph target species. In addition, the general birding is exceptional – Sandhill Cranes by the thousands, Mountain Plover, Scaled Quail, Vermillion Flycatcher, Loggerhead Shrike, Chihuahuan Raven and many more possibilities, including a good chance for ABA area rarities.

The tour starts and ends in Tucson, AZ. Tour cost includes guide, ground transportation,  park fees, lodging, and most meals. Airfare to/from Tuscon is not included.

Cost:
$2,095 member, $2,145 nonmember
