My husband and I went on a bird outing with a group to the Sweetwater Wetlands in Northwest Tuscon. We had 2 birding experts with the group.This is the first time I have been here. As soon as we stepped out of our car we could hear birds everywhere! I saw 19 new birds. My daughter and I went again today and I added a Harris Hawk and European Starling to my list. These bird photos were taken by my husband.
