FROM DESERT VALLEYS TO ISLANDS IN THE SKY: BIRDING SOUTHEAST ARIZONA
Southeastern Arizona, with its deserts, canyons, grasslands, riparian areas, and mountains close to Mexico, has long been a mecca for birders. From common species in the lovely Sonoran desert to hummingbirds, flycatchers, trogons, and passerines whose range just barely enters the USA, the region entices birders in every season. The several "sky island" mountains allow the exploration of desert scrub to coniferous forests in a single day! This slide-illustrated program focuses on the unique birds and key birding destinations in the splendidly scenic beauty of southeast Arizona!
Speakers: Scott Stoner and Denise Hackert-Stoner
The award-winning nature photography of Scott Stoner and Denise Hackert-Stoner has been exhibited in galleries across New York’s Capital Region. Their work has appeared in Birder’s World, National Wildlife, New York State Conservationist, the Kingbird, the Albany Times Union, the books, “New York Wildlife Viewing Guide,” “In Praise of Poison Ivy” by Anita Sanchez, and “Birding the Hudson Valley” by Kathryn J Schneider, and is on display at the NYS Museum and Five Rivers Environmental Education Center. To view their images, please see www.naturelogues.com
Scott and Denise are avid birders as well as photographers. Scott began birding in his childhood on Long Island and birded extensively in southeast Arizona as a graduate student at the University of Arizona in the 1980s, a place he and Denise have subsequently visited many times. Scott is a past president of both the Hudson-Mohawk Bird Club and the Audubon Society of the Capital Region, Denise is a field trip leader, and past director and vice president of the HMBC.
