Rio Salado Restoration Project in Phoenix

Spent most of the day in an Audubon Arizona Council meeting, but started off the morning joining a birdwalk at the Rio Salado Restoration Project area near downtown Phoenix. Great to see lots of birds in the native vegetation planted along this stretch of the river. I was lucky enough to see the Varied Thrush and Painted Bunting--locally rare birds that have been here for a couple weeks. Other year birds for me were Osprey, Neotropic Cormorant, Double-crested Cormorant, Green Heron, Snowy Egret, and Costa's Hummingbird.

Daily List: 38 species (190% of Bird RDA)
2008 List: 177 species
