Be sure to sign up in advance for special events by calling us toll free at 888-257-2050. The calendar above has a representation of a few of the many events in the area.



SPECTACULAR fall migration BIRDING!

Late Summer/Ealry Fall is one of the best times to visit SE Arizona.  The weather begins to become more temperate with sunny skies and relaxing evenings.  The many birds that migrated North for the Summer return in waves as they head Southbound, following the San Pedro River course (right outside our back gate!), with their chicks in tow. The San Pedro River Valley is at its peak with bountiful habitat to host their transit.  The Fall Migration starts in early August continues with weekly waves of different species through mid October.  Fall Migration birding at the Casa features the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory (SABO.org) conducting Friday afternoon Hummingbird Bandings (4-6 pm) through early October.  You should really plan to be here to join the fun!

So come to learn more about these tiny visitors, hold one in your hand to release it, and have a memorable moment with Nature!   What a great time to be in SE Arizona!

Can't Travel This Fall? 
We are as dismayed as you are that you will not be able to visit the Casa this Fall during the CV-19 epidemic.  But it is better to be safe and well than it is to take on the risks of travel during this fraught period of time.  The birds are showing up on schedule for the Fall Migration, but it is so odd for us not to also have a throng of enthusiastic birders to enjoy the avian circus.  But (hopefully!) this too shall pass and we will eventually be able to get back to "normal".  And we are expecting you to join us again as soon as it is safe  to travel again. 

And, if you want a SPECIAL DEAL:  Purchase Gift Certificate for you (or a friend) to stay at the Casa in the future (they never expire!).  Buying your 3-night stay certificate locks in our current room rates for you, gives you a great deal, and also helps us plan for our future with you.  BUY NOW!


When You Can Getaway, Experience GREAT BIRDING in the San Pedro River Valley!
From the Casa one can head in several directions to enjoy fabulous birding.  The Casa itself offers a great place to start with our yard feeders, and a stroll along the San Pedro River.  Then our  Huachuca Mountain Canyons offer many different habitats to explore: Coronado National Monument (and Montezuma Pass), the Ash Canyon Bird Sanctuary, Stump Canyon, Carr Canyon (and the drive to the top ridge of the mountain), Ramsey Canyon and Brown Canyon Ranch, and finally the canyons on Fort Huachuca.   Great hiking, plentiful birding habitat await the birds and the bird watchers!

Fortunately the Casa is located in a perfect habitat (riparian) to attract most of the birds you want to see, and with only short trips to nearby related canyon and mountain habitats you can find many different species in the different habitats and elevations (from 4230' elevation at the Casa to over 9000 feet at the mountain peaks).  Our weather is still pleasant with sunshine and temperate nights - just perfect for you to enjoy magnificent bird watching, and relax in the quiet serenity of the Casa.

We can give you directions to all of our local birding hot spots, starting with our own back yard and the adjacent San Pedro River! 

As you tour SE Arizona from our high prairie grasslands, to mountain canyons, and riparian areas, it is probable that you will find well over 180 species in just a few days, without a lot of effort.  Local bird guides can help you find and identify the many types of birds, and guide you to the Winter birding hot-spots.  And as always, the San Pedro River Valley is at the heart of SE Arizona's hottest birding sites.



 

BIRDING (AND MORE!) AT THE CASA:

Hummingbird Banding at the Casa -  late March thru early October
