Melody's Birding Adventures,Southern Arizona
(So Many Birds, So Little Time)
Whether you are a birdwatcher or a bird-a-holic (like your guide), come and join Melody Kehl. Each adventure is designed with a schedule and pace tailored to your needs, giving a unique and personalized birding experience. Just imagine. . . an itinerary specifically designed for you. Whether you are looking for a day of birding, lusting for that elusive nemesis bird or yearning for a week-long all inclusive tour of Arizona, talk to us. No 15 passenger van to crawl in and out of, just you and me to share the experience, plus lots of little extras a big tour company can not offer . . . at about the same cost.
I am a non-aggressive birder who has a tendency to bird quiet (not much pishing or owl tooting or taping). It is my tendency to wait quietly and let the bird come to me which can take a little longer, but seems much more satisfying.
"In order to see birds, it is necessary to become part of the silence."
All of our day tours include a picnic lunch. We cater to people unable or unwilling to do the rigorous schedule of a tour group.
We now accept Visa and Mastercard, Discover and American Express.
Warblers are here. Red-faced and Grace's Warblers are nesting already.
Lucifer Hummers are in. Ash Canyon still offers the best opportunity for this beauty.
Our weekly excursionsinto California Gulch have begun.
The Buff-collared Nightjar is being seen regularly.
Ahh!! Southern Arizona always has a surprise around the corner.
We continue to praise the Great Birding God and thank him for smiling down upon us.
Despite the fires, Southern Arizona is absolutely beautiful. Lots of renewal. Yes, there are the charred remains, but Mother Nature seems to know how to fix this and make it not so alarming. A most spectacular year for annuals!!
I would like to address this issue of border safety. We are always cautious, but I am far more concerned about going to the mall after dark than I am along the border. There have been no changes to our operation and none foreseen. So come on!!! Let's go birding!!!
