Last night I watched a program on our local PBS station about all the places in Arizona where one can bird watch. They talked about all those I know about but they also listed several places I didn't know about. When this pandemic business is under control, I may have a visit a few of them. One of the places they talked about was the Gilbert Riparian Preserve in Gilbert Arizona. It's been a little over a year since I last visited this place so I decided to check my photos and see if I had any that I hadn't posted. It turns out I had several so here are a few I picked. Above are two American Avocet.
Here's a snowy egret admiring his reflection.
A hummingbird sitting on a twig.
A Blue Heron posing quite nicely.
A ring-necked duck.
A black-necked stilt. Another one with a good reflection.
And, lastly a female ring-necked pheasant.
They had signs all around the area to help with bird identification. Otherwise I don't think I could have named all of these.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today. I'm taking a look at one of my favorite Italian villas.
