The focus for this trip will be on wintering and resident birds in desert riparian and urban areas. We will check some of the local spots around Wickenburg including Boetto Park, Coffinger Park, along Rincon Rd. near The Meadows, and possibly Secret Ponds depending on road conditions. It will be easy walking at all of the sites and restrooms are available at Boetto Park and Coffinger Park (as well as at nearby gas stations and fast food joints).
Meet at Boetto Park in Wickenburg at 8:00am.
Trip limited to 10.
The field trip will wrap up by 11:00am and there are plenty of restaurants, fast food joints, and gas station food mart options if folks want brunch or lunch before they head back home. Otherwise, participants should bring their own water and snacks.
Dress in layers, as it is often colder first thing in the morning in Wickenburg than it is in the Valley.
