Birding At The Wetlalnd in Yuma

Good morning folks.  Believe it or not, my computer is back and ready to go.  We had a time getting it delivered.  Sony did a fine job in fixing it but sure screwed up on getting it back to us.
Since 1987 the Yuma Optimist Club has hosted the Catfish Rodeo at West Wetlands pond.
The West Wetlands pond was constructed with a bowl design . The  Arizona Game and Fish stocks the Yuma West Wetlands Pond.  The pond has been stocked with 1,100 pounds of catfish and bluegill.  (photo from google)

The "Cactus Wren"lives in low dry habitats. They do like the desert, in thorny shrubs and cactus, especially where the cholla cactus is common.
DesertDale also took these photos of the "mockingbird".  They nest in dense low shrubs.  They lay 3 to 5 eggs. Both parents  or just the female set on their eggs.
Enjoy.  Kitfoxgal
