Birding Walk in a Local Arizona Hotspot

May 6, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am


In this Saturday field experience with Eric Moore, participants will meet NHI and Eric in the field for a three-hour walk and birding adventure. We will bird along Prescott’s Peavine Trail, and will spend time in Watson Woods to look for spring migrants. With luck, we may see between 50-60 species!

The bird walk will start at 7:00 am and will finish at 10. Space is limited!

Please come prepared with a hat, sunscreen, water, snacks and binoculars. If you need to borrow binoculars, let us know when you check out! We have loaners available.

Eric Moore is the owner of The Lookout, in Prescott, AZ (formerly Jay’s Bird Barn). Eric’s interest in wild birds began early in life in New England, and continued when he moved to Tucson, Arizona at the ripe old age of six. When he was 13 years old Eric joined the Tucson Audubon Society chapter which helped accelerate his learning and love for wild birds. As an adult, after working in the grocery industry for over twenty years, Eric decided to combine his retail experience with his love of wild birds, and opened Jay’s Bird Barn, a backyard wild bird and nature store in 2003. For the last twenty years Eric has been writing a weekly column (on wild birds) in the Prescott Courier, and he has been guiding bird walks to help individuals create a connection to nature through wild birds.

On April 3rd of 2023 the name Jay’s Bird Barn was retired and the store moved to a new location with a new name–The Lookout, located at 1230 Willow Creek Road, at the intersection of Black Drive and Willow Creek Road.
