Three of the Top 10 birding destinations in the U.S. are within a close radius of Sierra Vista. The region is a seasonal home to many migrating species, including Green-tailed Towhee, Belted Kingfishers and Western Tanager. In the company of professional birding leaders — one for every eight participants — visit the Huachuca Mountains, San Pedro Riparian area and other sites known throughout the world as premier viewing sites. An average of 100-125 species of birds may be spotted during this birding adventure!
