Sweetwater Wetlands was built by Tucson Water as a water filtration system. At the same time, it is a beautiful park, a wildlife habitat and an outdoor classroom. On Saturday, February 13, the Tucson Audubon Society has organized a bird watching event under the banner “Tucson Meet Your Birds”.
This family event will start at 7 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. There will be food trucks and Tucson Audubon has binoculars available for those who do not bring their own. Parking is available at the park itself and along Sweetwater Drive.
The Weekly Green spoke about the event with Kendall Kroesen, Manager of the ‘Bring The Birds Home program’ of the Tucson Audubon Society.
Birds are of course as much identified by the way they look as by the way they sound; below are the calls of some of the most common birds in our area.
