The Feeding Station

New Feeding Station Hours:  Wednesdays noon to dusk. Dawn to dusk on all other days.  Please note: There are no  toilet facilities for day use.   Admission: $5 per person per day for day visitors.  Photography is permitted, but there are some restrictions and an extra fee for  tripods or monopods used for photography.  See our Photography policy here.

Our year-round, wheel-chair accessible feeding station and native plant garden is well known for attracting SE Arizona specialty birds, in particular the dazzling Lucifer Hummingbird (April 1 to October 1). We are the most reliable and accessible site for this species in the U.S.

Consistent daily maintenance and careful attention to the needs of birds affords astonishingly close-up views of  many of the Huachuca Mountain bird specialties people come to Southeastern Arizona to see.

This wheel-chair accessible feeding station 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).

While we’re famous for our hummingbirds of many species, there’s always so much more to see. Spring and summer bring vibrant splashes of color, with Black-headed and Blue Grosbeaks, Hooded, Bullock’s and Scott’s Orioles, and Summer and Hepatic Tanagers all crowding the feeders. But the birding in the yard is great year-round, with a host of exciting migrants, such as Lazuli Bunting and Western Tanager, wintering kinglets, warblers and sparrows, and always a wide range of classic resident Arizona birds, including Bridled Titmouse, Arizona Woodpecker and Canyon Towhee. Most exciting of all, Ash Canyon B&B attracts major rarities on occasion, which have included the likes of Plain-capped Starthroat and Yellow Grosbeak.
