Birding the Lake Havasu Area, Day 1
Havasu NWR

November 19 -- Havasu National Wildlife Refuge and Lake Havasu. Liz and I left home very early and drove south to Havasu NWR, which is located in Arizona along the Colorado River (across from Needles, California). We birded the refuge for most of the day, then continued south to Lake Havasu, proper. We saw lots of birds, but nothing special, as the winter ducks hadn't arrived in large numbers yet. We birded over the lake until long after sunset, then got a room at the Windsor Inn in Lake Havasu City.
