Sulphur Springs Valley is a winter paradise for birds of prey. Up to twenty
species may be found here between November and March, including eagles, falcons,
buteos, accipiters, harriers, kites and owls. SABO's Hawk Stalk tours take you
down highways and back roads in search of these magnificent predators and other
species that share their habitats. Along the way, your expert naturalist guides will share their knowledge of the
identification, behavior, ecology, and history of the valley's raptors, Sandhill Cranes, sparrows,
and other wintering and resident birds.
These all-day tours depart at 8 a.m. from downtown Bisbee (see map) and return between 4 and 4:30 p.m.
Participants travel in a small tour bus, with frequent stops for roadside birding and short walks. We recommend registering for this event at least 1 week in advance. Tours begin Thanksgiving weekend and continue most weekends through
