AZFO Field Expeditions – NOT your typical birding field trip

So what is the difference between a birding field trip and an AZFO Field Expedition?

  • Field Expeditions are organized with a specific purpose and data-gathering goal in mind.
  • Typically, they will be located in little-known or under-birded areas where the seasonal status of birds is incomplete.
  • Also different from typical birding field trips, most expeditions will be two or more days long and all participants do not remain together.
  • Participants are divided into several teams, each with a qualified leader, which conduct surveys in different areas during the day.
  • Normally, all participants will reconvene during lunch or dinner at a base camp or at other designated locations to review what was discovered.
