Mt. Ord (7100’), in the Mazatzal mountains, is one of Maricopa County’s few choices for high elevation bird habitat. An early start could grace us with one of the premier sunrises in the county. See Western Bluebird, White-breasted and Pygmy Nuthatches, Hairy and Acorn Woodpeckers, Woodhouse’s ScrubJay, Bridled Titmouse, Hutton’s Vireo, and Spotted Towhee. Potential sightings include: Painted Redstart, Olive Warbler, Cassin’s Finch, and Red Crossbill. Difficulty: 2. Uneven rock surfaces and short travel down moderately steep drainage. Meet at 5:00 am. Return at about 1:00 pm. Bring snacks, water, hat, sturdy walking shoes, hiking poles if necessary for drainage, and lunch. Limit: 8.
