Birding Pinal Mountain

  • Pinal Mountain Arizona (map)

Early spring migrants and resident species will be active. Cover four main habitats, each with its own community of birds: mesquite (3500’), chaparral, Ponderosa Pine, and Douglas Fir-Aspen near the peak (7890’). Sunrise is 6:20 am; temperatures will be 10 to 20 degrees cooler at the top than in Phoenix. Bring water and lunch. Trip includes two or three short walks into mesquite and Ponderosa Pine habitats, but trails are level and easy. Bring a walking stick if you will feel more comfortable. Most birding from the road and near the cars. Receive a bird checklist two weeks before trip. Leave Tempe 5:00 am. The drive to Globe takes about one hour and 20 minutes. Return 3:00 pm.

Limit: 11 plus leader in three cars.
Leader: Dave Pearson.
