Sweetwater

Spent the day at Sweetwater Wetlands - near the water treatment plant off I-10 and Prince. Never knew it was there until my friend Steve West told me about it. Nice place! (A little aromatic - but - a nice place.) Lots of ducks and flycatchers here. The photo gang (Steve, Melinda, Dean and Frank) spent the morning chasing fowl. I'm not a birder but asked the many that were there what some of our avian prey were. Here are a few of my pics and Here are a few of Steve's.

Ruby Crowned Kinglet . . .





Yellow Rumped Warbler . . .





Leucistic Vermillion Flycather . . .








Least Sandpiper . . .



Please correct me if I'm wrong on the idents here - and inform me of the names of the ones I haven't identified (or mis-identified). Thanks!
