 Howdee all,

Another Birders who Blog Tweet and Chirp Bird outing…


The date is Saturday, March 13th.

For those who want to bird longer we will also go out again on the 14th.

This is free and open to bring lunch, pay for your own dinner, lodging etc.

The area is one of my favorites..


check out the link here.

This should be a blast…wont be peak birding time here..but..there will be birds.and in the past a resident Elegant Trogan.

Haven't set a start time for Saturday yet..but earlier the better.

I thought those of us who wanted to gather early and have breakfast at

The Gathering grounds could arrive any time after seven ..Great coffee ..breakfasts and they can pack a lunch for you.

Then we could go birding..

Read this link….Birding the area SABOs Guide

I am open to suggestions but thought we would start at at

Patagonia State Park

and the “rest area” probably to early for the Rose-throated Becard..but who knows..

Then to Patons if still open..I just sadly read that Marion passed away last year.

more birding?

Dinner at the Velvet Elvis for those who want…

Tom and Sheri will be bringing their 12 person Van…if there are 12 or fewer.

If not we carpool.

Sunday we can continue on..discuss where we would like to bird…lots of great places nearby.


 The Cast of Characters so far….

Sheri Williamson and Tom Wood     Sheri’s Homepage which lists the books Sheri has authored and co-authored along with Tom and Sheri's blogs.

Also check out The Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory (SABO) website..Awesome Resource and a must place to visit.

We have birded with Sheri and Tom before and their enthusiasm is contagious.

  1. Patagonia is awesome... I was there years ago when I didn't love birds but was in an ecology class... I had a good time there...

  2. I'm putting it on my calender and hope to see you there! Patagonia is great and I would love to add the elegant trogon and the rose-throated becard to my life lists!

  3. @ Lowie..
    Yeah I love Patagonia..

    Cant wait to see u..yes I will be there for sure..Hoping to see some birds and connect with Bloggers/ tweeters that i know thru cyberspace.

  4. Sorry to miss the trip. We will by staying at Grand Canyon at a cabin from Mar 6-9. I'm hoping the weather's good!

  5. Dear Dawn,
    I actually will be in AZ that weekend, but there's a scheduling problem: I'll be conducting a panel with Jon Dunn and Liz Rosenthal at the Tucson Festival of Books that day--the topic, field guides.
    Why don't you have everybody assemble at the Festival and then bird Sweetwater instead?


ok what do you really think?????
