Birds of a feather travel together! Birders of all levels are invited to join us in Ramsey Canyon, Arizona, for a trip of feather-themed fun. Bob and Mark will lead this 5-day tour based out of Ramsey Canyon Inn, adjacent to the Nature Conservancy's Ramsey Canyon Preserve and the Coronado National Forest. ABF tour participants will take over the inn for the week as exclusive guests. Enjoy early-morning breakfasts, freshly baked pies every afternoon, and a relaxing, educational and inspirational week!
Nestled deep in the Huachuca Mountains, Ramsey Canyon’s 5,500-foot elevation makes it one of Arizona’s "sky islands.” Daily birding expeditions will likely visit Miller, Carr and Ash Canyons, the Ramsey Canyon Preserve and the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area. New birds the leaders hope to locate include: Mississippi Kite, Northern Goshawk, White-eared Hummingbird, Greater Pewee, and Sulphur-bellied Flycatcher. As usual, we expect to see a number of hummingbirds, woodpeckers, flycatchers and warblers not present in Southern California, as well as others such as Mexican Jay, Bridled Titmouse, Curve-billed Thrasher, Yellow-eyed Junco and Hepatic Tanager.
Included in price is five nights’ lodging, breakfasts and guided birding for 4.5 days. Transportation, lunches and dinners not included.
