Birding Arizona, What to Know, Where to Go.jpg

This program will take you on a tour around Arizona to some of the state’s most productive and interesting birding spots including a number of lesser known areas as highlighted in Charles Babbitt’s new book Birding Arizona-What to know, Where to go. Along the way we will explore a variety of different habitats and learn about multiple facets of Arizona bird migration including the summer influx of birds from the Gulf of California, fall hawk and shorebird migrations, and great places to watch spring and fall passerine migration. Charles will remain after the meeting to sign copies of his book.

Books are available for $18.00 for MAS members and $19.95 for non-members.
