Sunday afternoon I stopped by the Gilbert Water Ranch, a water treatment system that incorporates 4.5 miles of trails and a series of ponds. Lots of fun birds in the ponds including dozens of Long-billed Dowitchers, Great Blue Herons, and Great Egrets. I was lucky enough to find the Northern Parula that has been hanging out there this winter, and also found a Common Yellowthroat for my year list.
