WINGS OVER WILLCOX (WOW) combines adventure, entertainment and education to provide a fun-filled weekend of birding pleasure for the novice, expert or curious.

The Wings Over Willcox Birding & Nature Festival takes place during the MLK weekend with daytime activities. The festival is a wonderful opportunity to see the winter migrants and southwest bird species that are found in the Sulphur Springs Valley. Willcox is situated east of Tucson, Arizona and is a scenic drive of about an hour and fifteen minutes on I-10. Participants can stop in during a day trip, or check out our Area Attractions links for food and lodging options.
