 Bird Photography: Whitewater Draw for   Sandhill Cranes by Bus

 Cost is $50.

 This important bird area is dominated by an ephemeral lake, patchy   marshlands, and semi-arid grasslands. Approximately 600 acres are the   wetland. There are two small patches of riparian habitat. This Arizona   Game and Fish Wildlife Area is of state and regional significance as the   primary wintering area for Sandhill Cranes (Grus canadensis) in Arizona,  and includes both the Lesser (most numerous) and Greater subspecies.  Other birds may be seen here as well.

This trip will be led by bird and nature expert, Sandy McMahan, who is a long-time teacher and trip leader. Whether you're an expert birder/photographer or a beginner, you will enjoy Sandy's narratives. If you have binoculars, you may want to bring them along. A small notebook and pen or pencil would be useful to record your sightings. 

Bring a lunch and be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes. A hat and water are suggested.  We'll probably be here for about two hours, so you may bring a folding chair.

Meet at the Camera Club at 7:30 AM.  The bus will leave for  at 7:45 AM. 

Linda Gregory will be our leader.  For questions call Linda at 520-625-5121 or email at lsgregaz@gmail.com.

Last refund date is December 29th, 2019
