Saturday, May 14, 2022, 8:00 am
Join Amerind and the Tucson Audubon Society for a birding walk at the Amerind Museum Campus. During this one-hour walk, you will explore Amerind’s property with Tucson Audubon Society volunteer field trip leader Jim Rorabaugh. Birders of all experience levels are welcome to join this walk and learn about birds and natural history at Amerind. Participants should prepare for a moderate level of walking to reach birding locations. Please wear comfortable shoes, sun protection, and bring water.
Jim Rorabaugh earned BS and MS degrees in Zoology and Animal Ecology, respectively, from U.C. Davis and then went on to a 30-year career as a wildlife biologist for various federal agencies, mostly in Arizona and California. He spent his last 20 years working on threatened and endangered species in southern Arizona while employed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Phoenix and Tucson. Mostly known for his work in herpetology, Jim is the senior author of A Field Guide to the Amphibians and Reptiles of Sonora, Mexico, as well as many other published works in herpetology. He was worked extensively in Sonora as well as southern Arizona. Jim began birding in Arizona in 1979 and enjoys sharing with others what he has learned over the years about birds, other animals, and plants. Now retired, he lives off-the-grid in a remote area of Cochise County where the lizards are strong, all the snakes are good looking, and all the birds are way above average.
