Trip Leader: Doug Jenness (d_jennessAThotmail.com)

The riparian area along the San Carlos River, one of two rivers that flow into San Carlos Lake, is very rarely birded. The principal goal of this expedition is to explore about five miles along this riparian corridor, from its mouth northward. More detailed information is found here.

AZFO Field Expeditions – NOT your typical birding field trip

So what is the difference between a birding field trip and an AZFO Field Expedition?

  • Field Expeditions are organized with a specific purpose and data-gathering goal in mind.
  • Typically, they will be located in little-known or under-birded areas where the seasonal status of birds is incomplete.
  • Also different from typical birding field trips, most expeditions will be two or more days long and all participants do not remain together.
  • Participants are divided into several teams, each with a qualified leader, which conduct surveys in different areas during the day.
  • Normally, all participants will reconvene during lunch or dinner at a base camp or at other designated locations to review what was discovered.
