Online Opportunities for Birders and Nature Lovers

The last several months have seen the cancellation of guided bird and nature walks in our area as well as the cancellation of events such as the Southwest Wings Spring Fling and Summer Festival.  Fortunately, great challenges can also lead to great opportunities.

Accordingly, SWW has commissioned local videographer Mike Foster to create a virtual birding and wildlife tour from the top of the Huachuca Mountains to the San Pedro River, not forgetting Whitewater Draw and other area birding and nature hotspots.  This “Sky Islands” video highlights many of the unique birds and mammals in our area, including the Elegant Trogon.  Please click here to enjoy this 22-minute video.

Another organization offering the opportunity for birders and nature lovers to indulge in their favorite pastimes is the Sky Islands Alliance.  Online volunteers can assist the SIA in identifying the many birds and mammals captured on their Borderlands Wildlife cameras.  To learn more, please click here.
