Tours offered in this region:
Southeast Arizona is one of the regions of the US where birders and photographers return time and again. The reason for this is that it is packed with birding and photography hotspots, often hosting species difficult to see or photograph anywhere else in North America. For example, it is the hummingbird capital of the US, with the number of species regularly reaching double figures. While the desert is arguably the most conspicuous feature of the state, where many southwest specialties occur, Arizona also boasts isolated mountain ranges, or "sky islands", which provide a whole new group of birds, including yet more hummingbirds, trogons, and a series of beautiful warblers, to name but a few. As the region is a major hotspot for birds, there are numerous sites to visit, many with feeders offering easy birding and photography, but also readily accessible trails that weave through wooded canyons to find the scarcer specialties.
We offer Birding and Photo Tours to cover the myriad opportunities offered by Arizona for both of these.
