SPRING birding in SE Arizona
SE Arizona is home to many species of birds that either reside here year-round, or that come South to the area for the winter months. The chang-over from Winter to Spring birding occurs during mid-March through mid-May. By the middle of March the 22,000 or more Sandhill Cranes leave Whitewater Draw, east of Bisbee, and head back to Nebraska, Alaska, and Siberia for the Summer. And with the advent of the Spring Migration starting in late March, the flood of species heading northbound creates a daily change-over in the number of species that can be found each morning along the River. Thus, the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory has guided early morning River Walks (Tuesdays and Fridays) to help you sort out all the many species of warblers, tanagers, buntings, hawks, owls and assorted other birds that arrive weekly. And, of course, the San Pedro River Valley is rife with birds as well, from the River itself (right outside our back gate), through the grasslands (sparrows, hawks), to the Huachuca mountain canyons. One can collect between 120 to 180 species of birds in a short drive between the different habitats. Join us for a Spring Migratioin birding experience and be sure to take some time off to settle into the Casa to relax and enjoy our warm hospitality!

Every Monday and Thursday during the Spring we offer a Mexican Dinner to our guests. Our Mexican Chef, Elvia Villa has been providing these great dinners for our guests for the past 12 years, and many guests come back just for the dinners! These Monday and Thursday dinners dove-tail with the Tuesday and Friday early morning River Walks, so our guests do not need to go out to dinner and the nights before the River Walks, and are ready for the early morning walks.
The menu varies week to week based on the availability of fresh local ingredients. $25 per person plus tax and gratuity. Minimum 2 night stay at the Casa required. Please reserve your spaces at these dinners in advance so Elvia knows how many people are attending. Limited availability of complex special dietary considerations ($5 surcharge).
