Tucson Audubon Society: Gilbert Water Ranch (Phoenix Metro Area) and Rosey-faced Lovebirds Field Trip

We’ll start at 8am at the Water Ranch, one of the top birding destinations in the Phoenix metro area, usually yielding 45-50 species in a typical two-hour cool season walk, including wintering waterfowl, waders, shorebirds, common desert species and often some surprises.

A roseate spoonbill has been visiting regularly, hanging around with the egrets. After a break, we’ll take a quick detour to a little-known linear park that is quite reliable for Rosey-faced Lovebirds to see if we can punctuate our field trip with these flying rainbows.

Wrap up around 11:15 am. Meeting place will be determined a few days before the trip. Limited to 10 participants.
