An Eagle Scout project is noticed.
El Rio Preserve often has much more water in it than the day I recently visited. However, as I walked around I noticed a duck blind built by an Eagle Scout. It is a fantastic addition when observing ducks from this location when the water is higher and ducks can be seen from it. This area captures overflow from mountain slopes and the Santa Cruz River overflow. Local Tucson Audubon has identified 244 different bird species here. I like stopping here also when I bicycle the Chuck Huckleberry Loop. I look forward to higher water and staying behind this blind to observe waterfowl. Thanks again to the Eagle Scout!
