A private yard & Preserve for Nature/Bird photographers is located just east
of the City of Sierra Vista in Cochise County in Southeast Arizona.

Located just minutes from Ramsey, Miller and Carr canyons in the Huachuca
Mountains and just 6 miles from the San Pedro River Riparian area. This area
is a must visit destination for nature and bird photographers.

A small pond and 3 bird feeding stations are located on the property, photo
blinds/hides are provided for the photographer. Various props are also
provided including certain flowers that are highly attractive to hummingbirds
(subject to seasonality & availability). Photo blinds are movable and can be
positioned within 15-20 feet of any of the bird feeding stations.
Below are some examples of recent photographs taken on the property.
There have been over 56 species of birds recorded on the property and more are being
added all the time as new arrivals visit the area. The availability of a permanent source of
water and feeding stations as well as natural shelters attracts a wide variety of birds,
especially during spring and late summer migrations.

Advance reservations for photography in the Preserve yard is required. No more than two
photographers can use the yard at one time, unless special arrangements are made in
advance for larger groups.
