Where do I find models?

A couple of times a week someone will ask me where I go to find my models. They rell me that they never see things worth photographing near where they live and work.
My last two photo expeditions were really exotic, a couple of retention ponds behind big shopping malls. You just have to slow down and look, sit still for a while, something is likely to show up.
One of my most productive sites is a retention pond at the corner of a boat ramp parking area, when it contains any water it draws birds from miles around, the sea birds love a bath in fresh water and a drink. It's dry right now, we need some real rain, but when the rain comes the birds will follow.
