Birds of Southeast Arizona: A Virtual Tour
Let the sights and sounds of warmer, drier climes take you on a virtual vacation from mud season here in the Northeast! An experienced bird guide, Jared Keyes will lead us on a multimedia tour of some of Southeast Arizona’s special places and special birds. The unique habitats in this corner of the Desert Southwest host an extraordinary variety of avian life.

Jared serves as Vice-chair and Treasurer of VCE’s Board of Directors, so not surprisingly, he’s also a lifelong bird watcher and conservationist. For the past 30 years, Jared has led field trips for the Brookline Bird Club (the birding club of record in the Boston area), and this spring he will also be leading bird walks on Cape Ann (Massachusetts) for the Essex County Ornithological Club. A serious bird photographer, Jared sells his photographs to online content providers and also donates images to nonprofit conservation organizations for use in their publications. Under the banners of jskbirds, jskpajaros and jskpassaros, Jared is active on social media with educational bird galleries on both Instagram and Facebook. These galleries seek to unite bird lovers from across the Americas. Images are posted twice weekly along with accompanying stories in three languages: English, Portuguese, and Spanish. The effort has garnered an active following of over 200,000, including over 45,000 in Brazil alone. Like the rest of us, Jared has been unable to travel for birds this past year, so has had to re-live previous trips through his photographs and eBird lists. He hopes his images can help transport others to places we are, as yet, still unable to visit.
