The Paton Center for Hummingbirds is a place to explore and experience the special birds of southeast Arizona. It is dedicated to the celebration and conservation of hummingbirds—and all of southeast Arizona’s astounding biodiversity—through recreation, education, and sustainable living.
More than 212 bird species have been reported for this cozy home lot on the outskirts of Patagonia, including Violet-crowned Hummingbirds, Gray Hawks, Varied Buntings, Green-tailed Towhees, Thick-billed Kingbirds, and many more local specialties.
Gates are open dawn to dusk. Entry is free of charge …
….but your generous donations to the “Sugar Fund” help us maintain the grounds, feed the birds, improve the habitat, and provide education and recreation programs.
