West Wetlands & Cocopah RV Resort

Greetings Birders!

Suzanne and I spent an hour at the West Wetlands this morning (Nov 3, 2012), and then I spent another hour at Cocopah RV Resort. Our best birds were a BLACK AND WHITE WARBLER and a small flock of PINE SISKINS at the Wetlands, and then my first Yuma County NEOTROPIC CORMORANT at the sewage pond in Cocopah RV Resort.

Also at Cocopah were multiple VERMILION FLYCATCHERS and a small flock of LONG-BILLED CURLEWS. Oddly, no ducks were visible on any of the ponds, although there were dozens of coots and COMMON GALLINULE.

YELLOW-RUMPEDS and RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS appeared by the score when pishing at any one location.
It was a beautiful morning to be out.

Good birding!
