Apart from the media it's big news for birders because after the passing of Wally and Marion Paton--and a period of uncertainty--the property will now remain a great birding site for the foreseeable future.
I was there today and a wide variety of birds was being seen, including stunning Violet-crowned and Broad-billed hummingbirds.

There will be management challenges, and we will need your help meeting those challenges. You can do this by leaving money in the sugar fund when you visit and by donating online.

It was fun seeing them up close but they probably can gobble up a lot of seed in a short period of time.
If you have thoughts about the management of the property let us know. New things you'd like to see? Things we should do differently? What should we do first?
Comment on this blog post or contact me (520-209-1806) and I will bring your ideas to the management team for the property.
