This post has some photos from a visit to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum and the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch.
Dave and I went to Boyce on March 12, 2016. There was a report of a a Hooded Oriole, but we didn’t see it. There weren’t many birds this trip, but it was a nice day and we had a good time.
Mary Ann and I took a walk at the RPWR with a friend visiting from Washington DC. I included one photo of an American Avocet.
