The Elegant Trogon

The Elegant Trogon

Bird the Chiricahua Mountains, Portal and Cave Creek with the El Paso Audubon Society. Birding begins on Saturday, May 18 and will end in the morning of May 20. Plan to arrive on the afternoon of Friday, May 17.  There might be some birding that afternoon. The birding trips will officially begin on Saturday, May 18 and we'll end the trip birding the morning of Monday, May 20, and return to El Paso. The headquarters for each outing will be the Cave Creek Ranch and you’ll depart from there each day. (DIRECTIONS)

Here are some contact numbers for accommodations:

Portal Lodge - basic motel, but a restaurant is next door - 520-558-2223; portalpeaklodge.com
Cave Creek Ranch - Very nice setting, lots of bird feeders; small, medium and larger units, most with kitchenettes  - 520-558-2334; cavecreekranch.com 

It's a good idea to book early.  The only restaurant and store in the area are in Portal, so be aware of that when planning meals, etc.
