Guess Where We Are?

Can you guess where we are by the photos?

Least Sandpiper
Trio - Long-billed Dowitcher, Lesser Yellowlegs, Least Sandpiper
Well?  Where are we?  This place has Monarch butterflies. . .

Arizona!  Would you have ever guessed that?  I went to the water retention ponds outside of Phoenix on Friday morning and that is what I found - lots of ducks and shorebirds.  And a new bird for me - Neotropic Cormorant.  It's technically not a "life bird" but it is the first time that I saw one well enough to identify and photograph it. The ID is the white outline at the base of the bill and the smaller size than our regular Double-crested Cormorants.

More to come.  We were supposed to fly home on Monday, but we switched our flight to tomorrow.  See you soon.
