We drive along the Bush Highway (north of Mesa) between Granite Reef Dam and Saguaro Lake, making several stops in recreation areas along the Salt River. A day’s list of fifty species of birds is very possible, including Osprey, Vermilion Flycatcher, Anna’s Hummingbird, Phainopepla, Black-tailed Gnatcatcher, and Black Phoebe. Beautiful views of a Bald Eagle are very reliable.
Bring a lunch, and a scope, if available. We will meet in the Walgreen’s parking lot on the southeast corner of Power and McKellips Roads at 7:30 A.M.
