SUMMER INTO FALL, 2017

The Reverse (South bound) Migration Is HAPPENING NOW!  - Every day seems to bring more and different birds to our feeders and to the San Pedro River, and area canyons and mountain ranges.  Adventure awaits the avid birder, the nature photographer, or even the casual nature lover.  Stay with us at Casa de San Pedro to be able to experience on of the best habitats in the nation for birding and high desert nature adventures.  The green stripe of the San Pedro River provides ideal habitat for migrating birds as they start to head South for the Winter..  Sit in a comfortable chair and enjoy the parade of birds as they visit out feeders on their way slowly southbound. 

And this also means that this is the peak of Hummingbird activity in the area as well.  During the reverse migration (heading South) the birds are bringing their chicks along (so there are many more individuals!) and our Summer monsoon rains have turned our valley green, with lots of perfect habitat (food, shelter, water) for the migrating birds to enjoy at a leisurely pace.  Join the fun !  So join us for our early Fall birding - plan your adventure NOW!




Hummingbird Banding at the Casa

Sheri Williamson and Tom Woods from the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory (www.sabo.org) are again planning to do Hummingbird Banding during most of the summer months and into September and October. (Exact dates and times are on their web site: www.sabo.org). And, see our calendar, above, for the dates.

The Hummingbird Banding happens in our back yard on (most, but check the calendar carefully!) Friday afternoons. Join Tom and Sheri for a great hummingbird experience.

These banding sessions at Casa de San Pedro are free to our resident guests.

For non-resident participants you must pre-register with SABO at their website and attendance is limited.

There is a small charge for participants not staying at the Casa.

THE ART AND CULTURE OF BIRDS - With Kathe Anderson

September 29 - October 2, 2017 - This is a full weekend program focusing on birds morning and evening, with afternoons free to relax at the  Casa or explore the many natural and cultural resources of the area.

 On the first evening, we’ll hear about the amazing bird world, where it’s sometimes difficult to distinguish fact from fantasy. In this presentation, featuring hummingbirds, raptors and ravens, among other species that figure prominently in cultural folklore, test yourself to see if you can tell which stories are too weird to be true. Why are these stories important, whether believable or not?

 On the second evening, we’ll discuss nature journaling, with an emphasis on birds. There are many reasons to keep a journal about your nature and birding experiences, not the least of which is to make you a better birder! Test your talents—at any level—during this beginner class to write about and draw birds, indoors and out.  In a short evening class (about 40 minutes), we’ll discuss the reasons to keep a journal, what a journal might look like, and do a couple of quick exercises for both writing and drawing.

November 10 - 12, 2017 - This is a full weekend program focusing on birds morning and evening, with afternoons free to relax at the Casa or explore the many natural and cultural resources of the area.

On the first evening, we’ll look at and discuss some of the major families of raptors, including falcons, “forest hawks” and soaring birds, plus vultures. What should we be looking at to help tell them apart?

 On the second evening, we’ll some favorite songbirds—bluebirds, robins and thrushes. While these melodious songsters are popular and widely known from other parts of the United States, we have our own collection in Arizona. This class will emphasize the common—and not so common—species of this family in this state, providing some information on their backstory and identification.
