SE Arizona - Sweetwater Wetlands (19 Feb 2013)

by AJ 19. February 2013 19:00

With plans for dinner with old friend Clarice and her husband, and the likelihood of nasty weather the following day, I decided to bird Sweetwater before backtracking for dinner.  The thousands of mostly Northern Shovelers were in constant motion.  Cinnamon Teal are always a treat.  Both Yellow-rumped and Orange-crowned Warblers bounced around in the wind.  A juvenile Harris' Hawk posed nicely for me.  After dinner, despite the nice invitation from Bob and Clarice to stay at their place, I headed to the north side of Tucson for the night in hopes of beating the weather the next day.

Here are some photos from Sweetwater:
