Bonnie Paton Moon, Daughter of the Late Wally and Marion Paton and Larry Morgan “Ambassador For The Birds,” Stewart & Caretaker for the property of Paton’s Birder Haven; are the next special guests on BirdCallsRadio WORLDWIDE, Internet Streaming & BCR iTunes. Come join us for Part 1 of this extraordinary interview.
In 1974, Wally and Marion Paton, life-long gardeners, naturalists bird-lovers began to plant flowers and install water features on their property in Patagonia Arizona. They put up hummingbird feeders and had great success, attracting Violet-crowned Hummingbirds along with even rarer species like the Cinnamon Hummingbird and Plain-Capped Star-throat. When the couple realized birders were crowding outside their fence to get a better view, the Paton’s opened the gate and welcomed them inside. So began this conservation story of two dedicated naturalist that lives on as a testament to their vision.
