Southeast Arizona Hummingbirds and More Spectacular Birding

Trip Description

Brief Itinerary

When many birders think of Arizona, they think hummingbirds! Ten to twelve species are seen on most trips, and we make sure you visit all the feeding stations where these birds are being seen. Among others, you can expect to see Rivoli’s Hummingbird (recently split from Magnificent), Blue-throated Hummingbird, Lucifer Hummingbird, Costa's Hummingbird, Broad-billed Hummingbird and Violet-crowned Hummingbird.


Of course, Arizona birding is not just about hummers: There are at least twenty species that are more easily found here than anywhere else in the United States, plus several more that share this distinction only with southern Texas. We’ll do our best to show you Elegant Trogon, Arizona Woodpecker, Buff-breasted Flycatcher, Thick-billed Kingbird, Mexican Chickadee, Olive Warbler, Red-faced Warbler, Rufous-winged Sparrow, Yellow-eyed Junco and many more. For birders, this area of the country is a must-visit place.
