Best sites **

**Desert Botanical Gardens
Area around the zoo (Papago Park) - next door to Desert Botanical Gardens
Salt River area that flows through Tempe
Veterans Oasis Park - Chandler - NE corner Lindsay and Chandler Heights -- winter ducks
ASU research Park - Tempe - various Ponds
** Gilbert has an excellent Water (recharge park) Ranch -- a favorite with bird photographers. You'll see Peach Faced Lovebirds there....as well as whatever else is there (consistent rarity location -- recently Rufous Backed Robin, and others)

**East of Phoenix up US 60 at Superior is Boyce Thompson Arboretum

And Tucson isn't far away with many locations north and south of the city.

Have fun
Don Nelson
