On the road again first stop was Tres Rios Wetlands: a Wildlife Viewing Area in Southwest Phoenix. We arrived early at the Wetlands in time to view a myriad of bird species. It certainly was a great day for birding: Peregrine Falcon, Hawks, Pelican, Owl nest, ducks, ducks, ducks!  We planned to spend as much time as possible at Tres Rios, but due to circumstances beyond our control we were forced to end our birding and switch to “car-birding.”  After car birding, we were on the road to the Audubon Arizona on Central Avenue in Phoenix. We walked the trails and took in the beautiful scenery. From Audubon Arizona we made a stop at Rio Salado Habitat Area very near to the Audubon Arizona.

Following are photos I captured during our “on the road again” trip.
