The uniqueness of the property includes:

* Highest residential area in the Huachuca Mountains.

* Two miles from the nearest residence

* Adjacent to Miller Peak Wilderness

* Numerous ponds, permanent water in Miller Creek

* Hummingbird & butterfly gardens with feeders

* 1300 apple trees

* Great views of the San Pedro Valley & of the surrounding mountains

* Hiking trails in all directions

This unique setting helps attract more hummingbirds to our feeders than any other area in the Huachuca Mountains.


Notice that each fence post has a hummingbird feeder on it, and it is numbered so you can tell a friend look at the White-eared on number 5.


Sorry but this is no longer there, I just have not had the time to change it. I has been moved across the road from here.

Since I put this image on line things have changed. This is no long in this spot. I don't know where it was put but as soon as I get the time I shall redo the photos, I guess this is on goverment land and had to be moved to another location. 04/13/04

Directly across from the feeders is a very nice shaded place to sit and watch or photograph the birds.


A frequent visitor to the feeders is this beautiful White-eared hummer.


Not to be out done is a Magnificent on the fence just below the feeders.


And then there is the butterfly garden just the other side of the fence the feeders are on.

One more thing; if you promise not to tell any one, I will tell you of my secret most Hummingbird photographing place. But you've got to promise me you won't tell Tom Beatty where you got this information, OK? Now if you are going to be a tell all don't bother to go there. It's called the controlled access site.

But if you can keep my secret click here, you'll love it.
But it's only for the very serious minded photographers.
