Tips for birding Willcox Playa Wildlife Area
A visit to the Willcox Playa Wildlife Area offers a rich experience in an otherwise desert environment. Bird-watching at the playa and associated habitats is a fantastic way to spend a day or a weekend. Birds that can be seen range from shorebirds to the always enjoyable flocks of sandhill cranes that are the focus of the annual Wings over Willcox birding festival.
Each winter, hundreds of species of birds visit the Willcox Playa Wildlife Area. Growing interest in viewing this wildlife sparked an annual event, Wings over Willcox. The festival features education, food, and crafts, as well as tours to see the sandhill cranes and other wildlife.
