Paton Center for Hummingbirds
Registration fee: $35/member, $50/non-member* | Register here beginning Nov 12, 7:00 AM.
Trip difficulty: Easy. Plenty of time spent watching feeders and wandering around the Paton Center. Short walks (less than a mile) on adjoining trail systems with time to rest in between. Trails are mostly packed dirt or gravel roads with maybe some walking in the dry bed of Sonoita Creek.
The famous Paton Center for Hummingbirds is known for its backyard birds and scenic location and is the perfect place to explore and experience the special birds of southeast Arizona. We’ll look for three species of hummingbird (Anna’s, Broad-billed, and Violet-crowned) as well as returning wintering birds like Red-naped Sapsucker and Green-tailed Towhee. This time of year can be when Rufous-backed Robins start showing up, so we’ll hope for one of those too! We’ll bird for about 2-3 hours depending on how birdy it is and follow-up with coffee/food at Gathering Grounds if you’re interested. Limited to 10 participants.
