    SABO's very popular hummingbird adoption program is up and running again! With a contribution of $25, visitors to our hummingbird banding stations can sponsor a banded hummingbird and help support our ongoing research and outreach efforts. Adoptions include a personalized certificate and notifications if the bird is re-encountered.

    Hummingbird banding season ends soon! Check our Calendar of Events for upcoming banding sessions.

    Thanks to the efforts of wildland fire crews and recent rains, the Brown fire in the northern Huachuca Mountains east of Sierra Vista is now 100% contained. Ramsey Canyon Preserve and Huachuca Canyon have reopened.

    The storms that helped to douse the Brown fire produced lightning that started a grassland fire north of the Huachucas, but that fire has also been contained.

    Bird on!

    The 2014 fire season has begun in southeastern Arizona. Fire crews are battling the Brown Canyon fire, a small (<100 acres) human-caused blaze on the western slope of the Huachuca Mountains.

    This fire is far from populated areas and popular birding destinations and unlikely to cause serious problems for residents or visitors, but high fire danger and/or future fires may result in closures of public lands. We will do our best to keep the birding community informed about closures and other safety advisories from public lands agencies.

    Updates on wildfires throughout Arizona are available on Inciweb.

    Tucson Audubon Society, American Bird Conservancy, and Victor Emanuel Nature Tours have announced the purchase of the world-famous "Patons' Birder Haven" in Patagonia. This joint fundraising effort saves the popular birding destination from the same fate as the Spofford yard in Portal, which closed to the public after the death of its owner and host, retired ornithologist Sally Spofford. The site will be managed by the Tucson Audubon Society. Read more about it at the Arizona Daily Star:
