Ruff in Arizona

Sunday morning I was lucky enough to see a Ruff in a flooded field between Buckeye and Arlington with 40+ Greater Yellowlegs and 300+ Long-billed Curlews. Unfortunately, a Northern Harrier and a Peregrine Falcon were both working the area and the birds all flew off before anyone else could see this rarity. This is probably the same bird that was reported last month a few miles away, and the birds are moving around a large agricultural area visiting ponds and flooded fields.

Other fun birds we found this morning in the Arlington area included Burrowing Owl and Rock Wren.
