Around ten species of hummingbirds use the San Pedro River as a freeway between their tropical winter retreats and northern nesting grounds. The Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory staff and volunteers capture, band, measure, and release these tiny travelers as part of long-term studies of the bird life of this internationally important migration route. Observe banding sessions for a fascinating and close-up look at the hummingbirds for no charge. Donations are gratefully accepted.
