We spent the morning birding with the Desert Rivers Audubon Society. They were leading groups at the Chandler Environmental Education Center. We borrowed binoculars and found 12 different bird species with the help of our guide - Turkey Vultures, Kildeer, Black-necked Stilts, Double Crested Cormorants, Say's Phoebe and many more . Eamon and Aine really enjoyed finding the birds and trying to focus on them with the binoculars. Benton hung out on mama's back and enjoyed the fresh air. The temperature was mild and our day was beautiful. We plan on going again next month as they lead the birding tours on the first Saturday of the month until April.
