Birding Paradise

See some of the most spectacular birds in the United States!

The Southwestern Research Station is located in the heart of the Chiricahua Mountains and is famous for its close proximity to nesting Elegant Trogons, a large diversity of hummingbirds, and other spectacular bird migrants from Central and South America.

Enjoy cabin accommodations, cafeteria dining, a reservoir for swimming, our hummingbird area and nature shop, and a multitude of hiking trails within walking distance or a short drive.


Individuals may make reservations from March 1–June 15 and from September 1–October 31.

All rates include three full meals (vegetarian and no red meat options available) in our cafeteria where you have the opportunity to chat with other visitors and share birding experiences. On those days you wish to travel to more distant areas to bird watch, you can enjoy an early cold breakfast, and pack a sack lunch with advance notification.
