Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands

  • Tres Rios Overbank Wetlands 5615 South 91st Avenue Tolleson, AZ, 85353 United States (map)

This large site of constructed wetlands at 91st Ave. and the Salt River hosts a large variety of wintering waterbirds and they should be arriving in good numbers by the end of the month. Tres Rios can produce some surprises too, so we will be looking for late fall migrants.  In addition, sightings of coyotes and bobcats are not unusual. The trails are level and easy, but we may walk as far as five miles round trip, so be sure to bring water and a snack. We will arrive early in hopes of witnessing the departing clouds of both Yellow-headed and Red-winged Blackbirds. There should be a good variety of newly arrived waterfowl as well as raptors such as Prairie and Peregrine Falcons or even a Merlin! If we’re lucky, we may see a Sora, a Virginia Rail, or even a Least Bittern. Limit: 6
