When the weather here is delightful, humans are not the only ones who head for Arizona. Goldfinches hang from the trees like Christmas ornaments, juncos make their tinkling calls like little bells in the grasses, other finches descend to the lowlands, and the exotic longspurs arrive at the sod farms. In this program, we will learn about our three species of goldfinches and other winter finches—the fascinating juncos, pipits and longspurs. Instructor Tom Gaskill will also provide some tips for identifying some of the trickier species.
