How it works You can book guide services with this guide by selecting from available dates above, or you can book through the general calendar.

For guides who only work a specific region (such as Phoenix, Prescott, or Verde Valley) you’ll need to book directly on their calendar as they aren’t listed in the general calendar

All you have to do is submit the form with your contact information and any special requests, and your guide will make contact with you directly, usually within 24 hours, to arrange your time afield.

There is no additional charge for using AZ-Birding; you’ll pay your guide directly at her or his usual rate. Learn more about our guides and what to expect.

Scott Wilbor, Nature InSight LLC

Scott brings a 20-year history of working in the Southwest as a conservation biologist, researcher, practitioner, coordinator, and director, as well as 14 years of experience as a wildlife and fisheries biologist in Alaska.  His avian studies and conservation work have covered all of Arizona, especially Southeast Arizona, and his Alaska wildlife studies spanned from Southeast Alaska to the Arctic.  His new venture, Nature InSight LLC (est. 2019, visit:  natureinsight-explore.com), strives to provide expert nature guiding, especially birds, off the beaten path that is insightful, fun, and adventure-filled, and tailored to all levels of experience.

Scott provides his guiding services within Southeast Arizona (Jan.-May & Aug.-Dec.), and further afield with National Geographic Expeditions (May-July).  The Santa Cruz and San Pedro Rivers, and the Tucson, Tubac, and Patagonia areas and surrounds are his guiding home range (all within < 2 hours driving time from Tucson).  Scott focuses his guiding on outstanding habitats for birds and other wildlife, as well as components and interactions of the whole ecosystem.  These habitats include:  riparian/riverine, wetlands, Sonoran desert, mesquite bosque, forest woodlands, and grasslands.  Scott offers ½ day (back by 2 pm) and full-day guiding ventures (back by ~5:30 pm).  Scott is passionate about sharing his ecological knowledge with people of all levels, ages, and backgrounds.

Scott initiated and coordinated Audubon’s Important Bird Areas Program in Arizona for 11 years with the Tucson Audubon Society (est. 2001).  He built new partnerships between the Arizona IBA Program and the nine Audubon chapters in the state, multiple federal and state agencies, as well as bi-national collaborations with Mexican biologists, and with many individual landowners in initiating conservation projects for avian habitat/natural resources protection.  He started the Avian Science Initiative within the program, to use professional and citizen-science volunteers to provide new bird population data to identify and promote conservation of the most essential habitat for birds in Arizona, our AZ IBAs (visit:  aziba.org)!  He has since been a conservation & science director for various NGOs in southern Arizona.  Thus, Scott knows the habitats for birds and how to find them in our wild southeast corner of Arizona!
