We made two lunch-time visits in late December and whilst it was an excellent place to watch birds whilst having our picnic lunch, I don't think that we saw it at its best. In part this may have been due to the renovations underway, but...More

I've been coming to the Paton's for over 20 years, before the Paton's passed on. This is a mecca for hard to find birds in southeastern Arizona. Several of the professional tour groups put this place on their stops. It is now owned and operated...More

This is a little gem hidden away in Patagonia. With just an easy stroll around, you can see lots of different birds in their native habitat, up close, and you don't have to walk far. Maybe this isn't great for serious birders, but for amateurs...More

Love this place. I'm a birder, and this place is low-key. They just let you pay your $5 and spend the day watching birds! What could be better than that? (Well, if they had bathrooms here, it would be perfect.)

We are new to the birding world and truly appreciated spending time at Paton's in Patagonia, AZ. This is an actual person's backyard that is now maintained and supported by the Audubon Society. There was a nice person from Audubon there who helped ensure that...More

The new backyard is now open allowing even more viewing opportunities. Three species of hummers were around and a Lazuli Bunting was around. Also a Grey Hawk which kept most birds in the brush.

This was our first time there and enjoyed walking around. Not much bird activity, but we would definitely go back. Nice garden. They are remodeling and wild like to see it when it is finished. It is located very close to the Patagonia preserve.

Love the relaxed seating areas and feeders to enhance the birding experience. It is also fun to meet other birders and share experiences. We have been coming here for many years. We appreciate the work being done to preserve this special spot.

What a find. This is a hidden gem found in Patagonia, AZ. The Paton family have turned their family home over to the Audubon Society. The area is being renovated but there are birds aplenty. We visited in early February and there were just a...More

Response from Trista107 | Reviewed this property |
It is a small area that really is set up for quiet bird watching. Though I don't think a small dog on a leash would be too much of a problem space-wise, quiet and less movement is appreciated as birders would like what they... More
