New Mexico is a fantastic destination for your bird watching vacation! Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast is on the migratory flyway. We get some really interesting visitors at our bird feeders, especially in the spring and in the fall (when the birds are migrating). Casa Escondida is a Santa Fe area B&B, which is located in historic Chimayo, NM (just 35 minutes north of Santa Fe, on the High Road to Taos). New Mexico has about 500 different species of birds on our state bird list—one of the highest number of birds in the country. The New Mexico wildlife is abundant! While a guest at Casa Escondida B&B, you can participate in a FREE guided bird walk at the Randall Davey Audubon Center & Sanctuary in Santa Fe. The guided bird walk is an enjoyable Santa Fe vacation activity that is offered every Saturday morning. An experienced birder will lead this easy walk on the grounds of the 135-acre Audubon wildlife sanctuary. All skill levels are welcome. The guided walk starts at 8:00 AM and lasts approximately 1 - 1 1/2 hours. No reservation is required. Meet in the parking lot at the Audubon Center. They even have binoculars available for your use during the walk. Dress for the weather. Of course, if you can’t make it for the guided bird walk, you are welcome to walk the trails and do some bird watching on your own during their regular hours. The Randall Davey Audubon Center & Sanctuary is open to the public Monday – Saturday, from 8 AM – 4 PM (closed on Sundays). They are located at 1800 Upper Canyon Road. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings and have fun! Let us know in advance if you plan on doing the bird walk. Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast is happy to prepare an early, self-serve breakfast for you so that you can head out early for your bird walk. Casa Escondida B&B is a green bed & breakfast that also offers pet-friendly lodging in 4 of our 8 guests rooms. Perfect for your Santa Fe area lodging needs. Feel free to call us or visit the Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast website to check room availability or to inquire about a reservation. We look forward to assisting you with your New Mexico travel needs.
