El Paso Trans-Pecos Audubon Society

See also

The El Paso/ Trans-Pecos Audubon Society is the local chapter of the National Audubon Society. This local chapter provides excellent opportunities for adventures throughout the American Southwest. The chapter offers one-day guided tours of local birding areas every month. This month, Feb. 2014, the group drove the desert area north of El Paso known as hawk alley. We spotted a rare Merlin, Northern Harrier, Red-tailed Hawk, and a Golden Eagle as well as numerous non-rapters such as Verdin, Black Phoebe, and hundreds of Lark Buntings.

The local society also organizes three and four day trips to birding sites in nearby New Mexico and Arizona. Like the recent trip to the Phoenix area, these are very well organized and enjoyable birding adventures in the southwestern outdoors.

Monthly meetings update attendees on birding related news in the area and presentations with nature videos and slide shows of trips by members. Both trips and meetings are an enjoyable means to meet people and learn about nature in the El Paso area.

Participation in trips and meetings is open to the public. For more information, please view the El Paso/Trans-Pecos website at
