The Hummingbirds migrate to the area sometimes as early as the first week in March.  We enjoy watching 6 different species swooping and swarming   the feeders.
The Black and Turkey Vultures migrate to Glenwood  on St. Patrick's Day and leave the first week in October.
For those who would  like to leave the 'world' behind and relax in the beauty of New Mexico, what better place  than the communities of Glenwood, Pleasanton, Alma and Mogollon. The Gila National Forest surrounds our area, the San Francisco River flows through town and Whitewater and Mineral Creeks cascade from the east. The first Dark Sky Sanctuary in North America is 10 miles N of  Alma.
