Bad Hair Day #1 (Click to enlarge)

Bad Hair Day #2 (Click to enlarge)

About an hour after arriving at Sweetwater this past weekend, we packed it up and went over to Christopher Columbus park, where we spotted this duck that was having a really bad hair day. Soon after seeing this duck, one of the regular visitors approached me and told me they had named the duck “Donna“, after another visitor who often frequented the park. About 5 years ago, a beautician by the name of Donna had left Tucson and moved to Florida. This beautician, apparently had some kind of wild and wicked looking hairdo that stood up all crazy-like. Only a few short weeks after Donna had left for Florida, this duck with the crazy looking head of hair came to stay at the park and the locals promptly named her after the beautician. So, if you ever find yourself over at Silverbell lake at Christopher Columbus park, be sure to check out Donna the duck.

Do not drink waste water

I made a trip over to Sweetwater Wetlands/Refuge to get some bird photography in this past weekend. There wasn’t much happening over there. I saw a few ducks and a couple of cranes, but other than that, there weren’t a lot of birds.

On my way out, I saw this sign and thought to myself why would anyone want to drink from waste water?? I guess a better question would be, did somebody already drink from the water and now they have to post signs?
