Some one hour drive north of Salt Lake City (Utah) one finds the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge, acclaimed the largest in the world. At least that’s what I read on a big sign on Main Street in Brigham City, the closest town to the reserve. In the past years I have visited this place several times, but always in summer – meaning there’s not that much water. For someone from The Netherlands however, most species are either new or interesting at least. This year I visited the place twice: one time in the late afternoon/evening, and once early morning. Many species showed themselves, and I was able to make some shots again. First timers this year were Clarks’ Grebe, and a Raccoon ! In this blog I also attached some shots of the surroundings, birding is also traveling in this case, isn’t it ? 🙂
