February Program-Presented on Zoom (no in-person attendance)

“Birds of the Sonoran Desert”

Presented by:  Chris Williams, Saguaro National Park

Tuesday, February 14th at 7:00 pm

Feb23ProgramPhotoEvery year birders from all over the world flock to the Sonoran Desert to experience some of the best birding in the U.S. With its diversity in habitats and proximity to Mexico, this region receives birds not found in other parts of the country. From roadrunners, trogons, to woodpeckers that specialize in making homes in cacti, the Sonoran Desert is extremely diverse in birds. Join Chris Williams as he explores the diversity of birds in the Sonoran Desert!

Chris Williams is an Education Ranger at Saguaro National Park. He grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and has worked at North Cascades National Park  and Olympic National Park. His favorite hobbies include birding, kayaking, and backpacking and his favorite trail snack is banana chips.
