Can anyone ID these birds for me?
Jim, if you are interested in seeing lots of birds try the Riparian Preserve in Gilbert at the southeast corner of Guadalupe and Greenfield roads. Their website is www.riparianinstitute.org
It's primary function is for recharging reclaimed water but instead of walling it off they made a park out of it. It's amazing how many species you get to see on a 110 acre site in the middle of a modern urban setting.
If you're further west try Tres Rios out by 91st Ave and south of I-10.
Be careful though, bird lust leads to lens lust and that's where it gets expensive.
