1. Hummingbird Sanctuary (Cornville)
Bernadette Bezich (new this year)
A large hummingbird population comes to her feeders amidst myriad flowers. This is one not to miss. There is no guarantee of seeing it, but recently she has had a Costa's Hummingbird visiting.
ADDRESS: 790 N. Page Springs Road, Cornville, AZ
DIRECTIONS: Starting from the Festival headquarters at the Sedona Red Rock High School's Sedona Performing Art Center: Begin measuring distances from the intersection of Upper Red Rock Loop Road and AZ Highway 89A. At this intersection, turn left, heading southwest on 89A. Continue 6.9 miles and turn left onto N. Page Springs Road.
Continue 5.1 miles to #790 N Page Springs Road, which will be on the right. (You will cross Oak Creek, and pass Page Springs Cellars before you reach this address.) There will be a sign on the right at the turn off. Take the driveway to the right. CAUTION: The turn is very sharp, and the driveway descends steeply!! Bernadette's house is straight ahead. Follow signs for parking.

Ask Bernadette about the hawk nest!


2. An Artist's Garden (Midtown Sedona)
Anne Emerson (a returning favorite)
A creative wonderland filled with art, creative plantings and plenty of hummingbirds and other birds as well...a magical green oasis in the center of the Red Rocks. The owner describes each morning as a sound track of the jungle with all the bird song. Feel free to relax and sit under the arbor and watch for the aerial displays of hummers dancing in the garden. (Anne's words and how she wanted to describe it)

3. A Professional's Garden (Uptown Sedona)
Larry Anderson (a returning favorite)
Organic Working and Display Garden: "From Grape Vines to Fruit Trees, to container pots, this garden has exceptional and numerous examples of the varieties of hummingbird plants that grow well in our desert region. Large trees and arbors are perfect for nests and resting sites for migrating hummingbirds and many North American bird species. Wander through the dense pathways of a gardener's 'wild and wonderful' habitat and discover new varieties to try."

John and Kay Klein (new this year)
The Klein's have made an entire house lot into an abundant 1/3 acre desert garden that the community can enjoy as well, as they drive by on Verde Valley School Road. They created a xeriscape, a water-wise natural desert garden. Kay is a dedicated gardener who loves roses, and the hummers are at home here with the desert willow and more.

6. Hummingbird Garden Oasis and Red Rock Views (Village of Oak Creek [VOC])
Lisa Snowden- (new this year)
Their back yard was once flat. Not wanting to put in a wall, they transformed the land with a berm, creating privacy from the road, and an oasis of plantings for hummingbirds and butterflies. Lisa is an interior designer and has an artist's eye.
