Glendale Recharge Ponds

  • glendale recharge ponds (map)

Expect to be hot—and hot on the trail of returning shorebirds. Start from Scottsdale 5:00 am to arrive in Glendale before sunrise. Prowl the wetlands for the usual variety of birds—ducks, raptors, and water-loving species like Black Phoebes, egrets and swallows, and hope for an abundance of shorebirds returning from the north. Possible unusual species for the desert, like Dunlin or Whimbrel. We will find a cool indoor spot to go over the list. Return to Scottsdale by 10:00 am. Difficulty: 1-2. Limit: 8.
