Birds of the Borderlands
We have put a boundary between Arizona and Sonora but the birds don't know that! There are many ecological traits of SE Arizona that tie us much closer to Mexico than the rest of the United States. We'll discuss why that is and the special birds we enjoy in our area that cannot be found anywhere else in this country, making this area a ecotourism destination.

Jennie MacFarland is the Conservation Biologist for Tucson Audubon Society and coordinates both the Arizona Important Bird Areas Program and the Tucson Bird Count. She also heads up other large citizen science projects such as the Elegant Trogon Census of SE AZ and Yellow-billed Cuckoo surveys of Sky Island Mountain habitats and has helped establish a bird survey program in the Monte Mojino Preserve in Sonora, Mexico.
Event Registration is closed.
