Exclusive adventures to discover the

Owls of the Sky Islands

Private Trips, April 14-May 4, 2024

Join us in Arizona…

And you just might become one of only a few hundred people who have seen the world’s smallest owl. Even if the Elf Owl evades you, this trip will be owlsome.

During your all-inclusive trip, you’ll have 4 days/3 nights to explore the sky islands of the Chiricahua Mountains in southeastern Arizona. From hawkwatching for southwestern specialties like the Zone-tailed Hawk to birding for the elusive Elegant Trogon, we’ll work with you to curate a trip tailored to your interests. And of course, you’ll have the opportunity to go owling with us every evening. You might even get to release an owl back into the night sky!

  • 4 day/3 night stay at the Southwestern Research Station in Portal, AZ
  • All meals during your stay*
  • Select alcoholic beverages
