Flights of Fancy
With Southern Arizona listed as a premiere destination for amateur and serious birders alike, the Gardens has invited its flighted friends, both migratory and residents, to make a home outdoors, in the Backyard Bird Garden, during later spring and early summer.
Single-family abodes, multi-unit dwellings, garrets, fabricated nests and other residences will be on display. Join us as we observe who moves in to the newly installed houses. Most likely to be seen are Verdin, Ash-throated flycatcher, Pyrrhuloxia, Purple martin, Lesser goldfinch and Cactus wren. With a little luck, you may also encounter Lucy’s warbler, Ash-throated flycatcher and Western kingbird.
Many of the birdhouses will be for sale and can be picked up at the end of the exhibit.Email this page to a friend
