Roadrunners and Cuckoos, with Guided Bird Walk

Oracle State Park

Saturday, October 19, 2019   3 p.m.

Join instructor and bird specialist Kathe Anderson in the living room of the historic Kannally Ranch House, for about an hour. Roadrunners and cuckoos are members of the same odd family of birds. These species play a significant role in human culture for good reasons – they exhibit extraordinary behavior. With an emphasis on Arizona species, and a peek into this odd family worldwide, this interactive class will explore some unusual anatomy of these birds, what they eat, how they behave, and threats to their populations. The class will be followed by a Guided Bird Walk at 4 p.m. The sunset bird walk will wrap up by 6pm, before dark. Please call for a reservation to participate in one or both activities (520) 896-2425; free with park admission of $7 per vehicle.
