We are blessed to live in beautiful surroundings, off the beaten path. Come and explore our area, free from the crowds and hustle and hurry of the city. We have something for everyone. Check out our area activities below and pick those that suit you. Come relax and enjoy!
The diversity of habitat in southwestern New Mexico makes the Silver City area a year-round bird watching destination. The Gila River with its lush river willow thickets and cottonwoods provides prime habitat for 60% of the bird species seen in our state. The scenic mountains of the Gila National Forest and surrounding grasslands expand opportunities to see a variety of species. 339 species have been seen in our area. The spring migrations usually begin in mid-April. Your hosts, Jon and Kris Greenwood, have birding guides, maps, and tips on the best locations. Kris is an avid bird photographer.
