Ring-necked Duck (Aythya collaris)
If you're an outdoorsman and compulsive multi-tasker, this is the place for you. Just kick back with your binocs, fishing pole, camera, sunscreen and you can bird, fish, snap some great wildlife photos, and get a tan all in one place! Red Mountain Lake has to be the nicest urban lake in Mesa, and the most wheelchair accessible. Just southeast of Brown & Power Roads, you could easily stop here enroute to birding along Bush Highway. Aside from the assortment of birds, this park is also loaded with Rock Squirrels, Round-tailed Squirrels and Cottontail Rabbits. Birds seen included Yellow-rumped Warblers, Red-winged Blackbirds, Aberts Towees, Gambels Quail, American Coots, Pied-billed Grebes, Cormorants, Red Head Ducks, Ring-necked Ducks, Canada Geese, and Cactus Wren.
