About the Site

Tubac HawkWatch is situated along the Santa Cruz River, funneling migrating raptors north of the site. This spring count site is said to be the easiest and best spot to see species that are uncommon in the rest of the United States, such as the Common Black, Zone-tailed, and Gray Hawks.
