We did a hummingbird banding talk and it was wonderful. Sherry, the person in charge, was so knowledgeable and nice. The volunteers were just as fabulous. If you are in this area you must do one of the hikes, classes, whatever they have to offer that fits your schedule.

We did not visit the observatory itself, but we encountered both Tom and Sherry and found them both awesome. Ran into Tom at Huachuca Canyon; he tried and failed to find us a trogon, but he did point out a pair of pygmy owls. The next day I found out who that gentleman was when we did a great bird... More
