In order to complete the Field Trip Leadership Training I’m currently taking, I’m organizing a field trip to The Phoenix Zoo.  The zoo opens an hour early for members so it is not as busy at that time.  Let’s meet out at the front of the northern most ticket booth (if facing the zoo, it is the last one on the left) at 7:30 AM.  We will scan the air and water on our way into the zoo and then begin with the shaded children’s trail to look for migrating species (orange-crowned warbler, yellow-rumped warbler, ruby-crowned kinglet) and migrating waterfowl (ring-necked duck, canvasback, ruddy duck, northern shoveler) and end with a pursuit of native resident species (gila woodpecker, gilded flicker, Anna’s and Costas hummingbirds) near the savannah and Arizona trail.  If you are not a zoo member, please let the leader know when you sign up so arrangements can be made to potentially waive the fee for this trip (entrance fee is currently $20 for adults/$14 for children).  We will spend about 1.5-2 hours on mostly paved but some uneven paths. Please wear sturdy shoes and a hat, bring water, snacks and binoculars.  Families are welcome.  Limited to 9 participants.  To sign up for this trip, or if you have any questions, please email Joy Bell at
