Sweetwater Wetlands Field Trip
January 2020
Early morning January chill gave way to a gorgeous mid-morning Saturday enjoyed by the 18 field-trippers from Santa Fe Audubon who joined Michael Drummond at Sweetwater Wetlands Park. Large numbers of birds were on hand, with many offering great close-ups for cameras. 48 species were recorded by our group along with a Mallard/Mottled Duck hybrid dubbed a “muddled duck.” Buffleheads, Roseate Spoonbills, Snail Kites, an American Bittern, a Sora and a Green Heron were among the noted sightings. Two Great Blue Heron nests (with their owners) and a huge mass of resting Black-bellied Whistling Ducks were also especially memorable.
