Whether you’re here as a day birder or as a guest in our well-appointed Casita, our 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 and other wildlife.

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

Our year-round 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 USA.

While we’re famous for our hummingbirds of many species, there’s always so much more to see. Summer brings a vibrant splash 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.

We are open every day of the year from first light to last light. We request a donation of $5 per person per day for day visitors.
