Let’s go birding in Sedona! Birding Northern Arizona is a dedicated birding and outdoor tour company led by experienced and professional guides. We are passionate about providing high-quality, fun and educational tours for the first-time birder or avid birdwatcher. Whether you want to plan an early morning stroll along Oak Creek Canyon or are looking for a more challenging hike, we would be happy to customize your trip to fit your birding and hiking experience level.

On one of our hikes, you may see birds only visible in the Southwest, such as the Painted Redstart, the Red-Faced Warbler and the Common Black-Hawk. We may also see a Hooded Oriole gleaning insects from the cottonwood canopy, or a Black-Crowned Night-Heron nesting near the shores of Oak Creek.

As an owner-operated company, Birding Northern Arizona is committed to protecting Arizona’s birds in their natural habitats and preserving the state’s pristine landscapes. Our philosophy is to leave these special places better than we found them.

We believe in the spirit of natural adventures. Our mission is to provide you with an outdoor experience like no other, revealing a world that you can’t see from a car window. Come hiking with us as we explore the beauty of Red Rock Country and discover unique birding opportunities.

Juniper berries abound, Pinyon Pine nuts are easily extracted, seed laden grasslands are havens for sparrows, and fallen scrub-oak acorns are easy pickins. The winter of 2018-19 has been one of the wettest in recent memory, including  large fluctuations in temperature. Honestly, birding was a bit disappointing. In general, numbers were down. […]
  • Bubbling Ponds Fish Hatchery; A Gem of an IBA (Important Bird Area)
    One of my favorite places to take people birdwatching near Sedona is the Page Springs Fish Hatchery, which is an excellent example of the cooperation that exists between state government and private groups like the Audubon Society. The Fish Hatchery is an 82 acre facility managed by the Arizona Department of Fish and Game, which grows nearly 700,000 Rainbow Trout to stock ponds, creeks, and streams throughout Arizona. In addition to Arizona’s largest coldwater fish production facility, there are several warm water ponds for producing sport […]
