Arizona Field Trip 2009

Caution: Birders at Work!

Thirteen SFVAS birders met in southeast Arizona for 8 days of birding led by Michael McQuerry. We covered the canyons of the Huachucas, the San Pedro Riparian area, Willcox Ponds and Portal and the scenic canyons and high elevations of the Chiricahuas.

Altogether 156 bird species were seen with another 5 heard, plus some interesting reptile and mammal sightings. A great trip! All who participated want to do it again.
