I had a brief trip to Gilbert this morning - the first in quite awhile! Unfortunately, the peak migration time is past, and many of the chicks are already hatched and growing quickly. However, the trip was still quite productive with one new species seen - Green-tailed Towhee. This bird is quite seclusive, living in dense brush, so I was not able to get any photos.
Other highlights included a Green Heron fishing (see photo below - it caught a small minnow), a very tame Peach-faced Lovebird, and the usual array of other herons, egrets, cormorants, avocets, etc. I counted about 40 bird species in the 70 minutes or so I was there. Not bad for a quick trip and only covering less than 1/2 of the park.
