Battiste's Bed, Breakfast and Birds 
About Us

Tony and Julie moved to Hereford Arizona from California in 2003, to their present home located at the lower end of famed Miller Canyon in the Huachuca Mountains. Tony and Julie thought that opening a birder-friendly B&B would be a great way to share their passion for birding. Since opening their B&B in the spring of 2004, they have entertained guests from 47 states, 6 Canadian provinces and 7 foreign countries

Tony has been birding since 1985. While living in California, he led field trips throughout the state. Since moving to Arizona, he has been a fieldtrip leader for Southwest Wings Birding Festival and Wings Over Willcox Festival. Tony willingly shares his birding expertise with guests of their B&B, setting up itineraries, arranging for personal guides, or personally offering his guide services at a reduced rate for their guests, leading them to local hot spots.

Julie's outgoing personality, strong family values, spirituality, and just plain friendliness, helps to create a real comfortable atmosphere for even the most intense and driven birders. Her attention to detail in their guest rooms are marveled at by their guests.

   Guests come as strangers but leave as friends.


**Tony and Julie would like to say a heart felt "Thank you" to all of their guests for the wonderful friendships that have grown out of their business. Your return visits and word of mouth testimonials have helped make our business a successful  venture and has brought great joy to our lives.
