Not a Shy Bird, Apparently

The last four monks were ordered to leave, but the peacocks are still in residence, and volunteers continue to staff the office and bookstore. Not sure what's going on, but the monastery south of St. David, Arizona, is still a pleasant and peaceful place to visit. Here is a review (of sorts) by another visitor who gave the monastery an A rating.

An old Kalamazoo friend and I were making our second visit to the monastery together. This year we explored the birding trail (developed in 1992) and enjoyed time spent on a park bench beside the larger of two ponds on the premises, catching up on one another's lives. We even, to our great delight, found flowing water in the San Pedro River. Water makes Michigan women feel right at home!
