The 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 around 4 p.m. Participants travel in a small tour bus (minivan for groups of 5 or fewer), with frequent stops for roadside birding and short walks. The group will stop for lunch in a local restaurant (separate checks). Tours begin Thanksgiving weekend and continue most weekends through February. We recommend registering for this event at least 1 week in advance.
Winter 2011-2012: $75 per adult for members of SABO, $85 for non-members; $40/members, $45/non-members for children age 10 to 16 when accompanied by an adult. Educational handouts and transportation from Bisbee are included. For more information, contact SABO.
