At the Hatchery we should see some of the high country birds, such as the Red-faced Warbler, the Painted Redstart, the Common Blackhawk, the Zone-tailed Hawk, and the Osprey.
The Hatchery has restrooms. Bring a lunch. We will eat at one of the picnic areas near the Hatchery and do some birding there. We will leave for the Valley in the early afternoon.
Meet at Denny’s in Fountain Hills at the intersection of Shea Blvd. and Hwy. 87 (Beeline Hwy) at 5:30 AM.
Directions: Take Hwy 87 to Payson. Turn right at Hwy. 260 (at light). After about 17 miles on Hwy. 260, look for the Tonto Fish Hatchery sign on the left. Turn left and go to the end of the road to the Fish Hatchery parking area. On Hwy 260, if you reach Christopher Creek, you’ve gone too far. Donna and Darnell will meet you at the Hatchery between 7:30 and 8:00 AM.
