Product Description

There are breeding Black-capped and Gray Vireos, Belted, Ringed, and Green Kingfishers, Indigo, Painted, and Lazuli Buntings, Tropical Parula, both Eastern and Western Screech-Owls, and four species of breeding orioles. It is a bird paradise in the middle of desert. To find out more check TNC’s website. The bunkhouse has a full kitchen and winners will need to bring their own food and linens.
