Welcome to our haven in the Huachuca Mountains.


Whether you’re here as a day birder or as a guest in our well-appointed Casita, this Huachuca Mountain sanctuary is a great place for birds and people alike. Located in the Madrean Oak Woodland habitat, we offer lodging to birders seeking peace and quiet as well as lots of birds. Our yard is within National Audubon Society’s Important Bird Area. We are a designated birding hot spot on e-Bird and on the Southeastern Arizona Birding Trail Map (#32), and home to many of the bird specialties people come to Southeastern Arizona to see.  You will find tips for planning your birding trip to the region here.

The Feeding Station:
We are open every day of the year from first light to last light.
This year-round feeding station and native plant garden is well known for attracting Southeastern Arizona regional bird specialties, such as Arizona Woodpecker and Bridled Titmouse (all year), and Lucifer Hummingbird (April 1 to October 1).   We request a donation of $5 per person per day for day visitors.  Get more information about the feeding station here.  See our Photography policy here.
