Field Trip Results– Wilderness Gardens Preserve

Hi Friends,

This morning May 7, fourteen birders walked around Wilderness Gardens Preserve and we found 48 bird species. This location is always a fan favorite.  The weather was cool and overcast which made it a great day for birding. The best bird of the day was a very vocal Canyon Wren. We saw lots of Phainopeplas, a Spotted Sandpiper, and a unexpected Belted Kingfisher made a quick surprise appearance.
