Join Seven Ponds Nature Center and local expert birding guide Ken Blankenship for a nine day/eight night birding adventure in southeast Arizona. The mid-summer monsoon rains cause a resurgence of life in the desert – a “second spring” during which many birds undergo a second breeding season. Join us as we explore of one of North America’s premier birding destinations. Our guide Ken will be with us every step of the way, leading us into the special places that make this area such a must-visit mecca for birders. Along the way, we’ll be staying at such famed lodging as the Santa Rita Lodge and the Portal Peak Lodge.
