Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch, Gilbert, AZ

This is an avain oasis in the middle of Gilbert, AZ It is renouned for the variety of birds that can be seen there at any one time. Over 200 species of birds have been documented. My first serious visit with a camera occurred this past weekend. I was able to photograph seven different species of birds during the short amount of time I was there on Sunday January 6, 2013. Hopefully, I can get my total above 100 species over time. Check back to see how I am doing.
