For decades, the Paton's have opened their yard to visitors who wish to see the variety of birds found along Sonoita Creek. Marion Paton is extremely knowledgeable about local species and has been featured in Smithsonian Magazine and National Wildlife. International visitors return year after year, and novice birders will find it easier to spot and identify birds here than in the wild.
Take 4th Avenue north and turn left on Pennsylvania Avenue. Immediately after you cross the wash, look for the Paton's distinctive "Birder's Haven" sign on the left. If the gate is open, you are welcome. It's customary to leave a few bucks in the 'sugar jar.'
