Birding in Wastewater

Wastewater treatment facilities don’t seem like great places to see wildlife. However, throughout the country the holding ponds associated with these areas are often amazing places to spot hundreds of bird species. At one such site in Okaloosa County, my mother and I found Bufflehead, Lesser Scaup, Blue-winged Teal, Least Sandpipers, Lesser Yellowlegs, Tree Swallows, and Barn Swallows. The sun was setting as we left, casting a golden light across the landscape.
