Friday afternoon after work I went to Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch in Gilbert to take photos and see if I could find birds I hadn't seen before. I was lucky to finally see both male and female Black-crowned Night Herons. They were both sleeping in trees and was able to get a photo the female awake before I left the preserve.
Saturday I had 2 photo shoots lined up and unfortunately they cancelled on me so I took the opportunity to try out Veteran's Oasis Park in Chandler. I was on the hunt for Birds of Prey since a photographer I met in Gilbert said he had great experience photography raptors. I was lucky and was able to photograph Turkey Vultures, Red-tailed Hawk and a Hen Harrier.
My favorite photos from the Veteran's Oasis Park were a cute little Verdin and the biggest Jackrabbit I've ever seen.
Below are some of the photos from Friday and Saturday.
