Sunday Bird Walks at Montezuma Well

Beginning Sunday, December 23, 2012, the National Park Service will offer guided bird walks at the Montezuma Well unit of Montezuma Castle National Monument. Montezuma Well is located 11 miles north of Montezuma Castle, at 5525 East Beaver Creek Road in Rimrock, Arizona.

Bird walks will take place each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. through mid-April, weather permitting. The park ranger will meet visitors at the picnic area and help identify birds around the site, while interpreting different species and their roles in the local environment.

There is no entry fee at the Montezuma Well location, and the program is free. Participants should bring water and binoculars, if they have them, and wear clothing and footwear appropriate for an easy to moderate hike. Programs last approximately two hours. Visitors may call the Montezuma Castle Visitor Center at (928) 567-3322 ext. 221 for more information.
