How many people have come to love birding just listening to Sheri and Tom talk about it? I'm one of them. I went on a trip with them and came back with a fire in my belly. It's not just interesting when you're with them, it's exciting. I don't get to spend a lot of time with them as I am often out of town, but you can bet I carry my bird books with me!

I've know Tom and Sherri for many years - way before SABO. What they have created will impact this area and it's people for generations to come. I give them my 100% support. Peace & God Bless.....Frank Escobar, Jr.

My first encounter was a Hummingbird Banding session at the San Pedro House in SE Arizona. The experience was simply incredible with the volunteers and their operation. The level of skill, care and dedication of the group to it's efforts and it's mission is without question...it's for the birds! I enjoy every experience with SABO and it's works. Sheri Williamson & Tom Wood are tireless in their efforts to share their passion with everyone who show's an interest...and seeing the little one's release the capture's back into the wild is a sight to behold.
