Birds and Wildlife of Southeastern Arizona – Joe Morlan

Joe Morlan will present photos and discuss the birds and wildlife seen on summer visits to Southeastern Arizona. We will be visiting several "sky islands," mountain ranges with connections to Pine Oak habitat more closely associated with Northern Mexico. We will also explore grassland habitat which enjoys a "second spring" in late summer with monsoon thundershowers that turn the grass green and allow special birds to breed for a second time. Highlights will include a variety of rare sparrows, flycatchers, brilliantly colored hummingbirds, Elegant Trogon, and the mysterious Mexican Duck. Please join us for what promises to be an educational and entertaining presentation.
