Sheri Williamson and Tom Woods from the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory (www.sabo.org) are again planning to do Hummingbird Banding during most of the summer months and into September and October. (Exact dates and times are on their web site: www.sabo.org). And, see our calendar, above, for the dates.
The Hummingbird Banding happens in our back yard on (most, but check the calendar carefully!) Friday afternoons. Join Tom and Sheri for a great hummingbird experience.
These banding sessions at Casa de San Pedro are free to our resident guests.
For non-resident participants you must pre-register with SABO at their website and attendance is limited.
There is a small charge for participants not staying at the Casa.
This is a full weekend program focusing on Owls and Other Common Feeder Birds.
On the first evening, we’ll talk about the back story of a dozen common birds of the urban/wild interface, many of which show up regularly at our feeders or visit our yards.
On the second evening, we’ll take a closer look at owls, their remarkable variety and physical adaptations for hunting mostly at night. We’ll focus on the identification and vocalization of 5 owls found in AZ. Choose one or both classes below, each $30. Field trips included.
