Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – Paton Center for Hummingbirds Field Trip

The famous Paton Center for Hummingbirds is known for its backyard birds and scenic location dating back to 1973!

Wally and Marion Paton first began inviting birders into their yard shortly after moving to Patagonia, and after their passing, the center was acquired by the Tucson Audubon Society with generous help from the American Bird Conservancy and Victor Emanuel Nature Tours. It is a place to explore and experience the special birds of southeast Arizona and it is dedicated to the celebration and conservation of hummingbirds—and all of southeast Arizona’s astounding biodiversity. Violet-crowned Hummingbirds are common and the many feeders attract a wide array of bird species. Sit and watch the bird show with Skye and Jonathan along with short walks around the growing trail system. Limited to 8 participants.


  • 6:00am – 12:00pm
  • $65/person + Festival Registration
  • Difficulty: Easy (Flat walking trails. Drive time to location approximately 75 minutes.)

Van Trips depart from the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at Reid Park.
