I birded Cook’s Landing this morning. I did it a little different this time. I walked down the service road just south of the first pond that heads to the I-430 bridge, then the next service road just before the park proper.  I found that it goes behind the ADEQ building and beyond.  Finally I went to the end of North Shore Drive looking for Donna Haynes’ Black-bellied Whistling Duck.  He was still there. I saw 38 species including the BBWD and 5 American Kestrel, a species I haven’t seen in several weeks.  I’m used to seeing those as singles, not a group but they were.

Here are some pictures from the weekend if you want to look.
