    Shore Birds in the Desert

    Judy Kennedy

    by Judy Kennedy

    A riparian preserve south of Phoenix, Arizona is a real desert oasis for a variety of waterfowl. Starring here is the Cormorant, the Great
    Egret, the Great Blue Heron, and the Killdeer. A cormorant dives and catches a fish. The Great Blue Heron gives a shout out - to whom I don't know!

    Cormorant - phalacrocoracidae
    Great Egret - ardea alba
    Great Blue Heron - ardea herodias
    Killdeer - charadrius vociferus
