Upcoming Field Trips
Let's go birding! Our field trips are generally free and open to the public. If driving is required, we will try to carpool using participants’ vehicles. We do ask passengers to reimburse the driver at a rate of $.15 (15 cents) per mile, to be split between all passengers in the vehicle. Bring binoculars, comfortable walking shoes and gear, and all the water and snacks you will need. If you are interested in a field trip, contact the trip leader for details. Please provide your cell number.
NEW! Breakfast with Birders

These fun unstructured gatherings were a great success. We are busy planning more of these monthly gatherings so check back
often for dates and times.
Breakfast with Birders
BYOB – Bring Your Own Breakfast to meet with fellow birders for conversation, breakfast, and birds. There is no official leader. This is an unstructured gathering to start your day with friends and birds.
Watson Woods Bird Walk
On the first Saturday of the month, we lead bird walks in Watson Woods, one of our favorite Prescott birding sites!
The walks are approximately 2 hours long and are open to birders of all ages and levels. Experienced Prescott Audubon birders lead these outings. This is a great way to get acquainted with birds and birding or to improve your skills.
