Provo River Field Trip - Deer Creek to Utah Lake

Merrill Webb led a great field trip birding from the Soldier Hollow area in Wasatch County to premier bird-watching areas around Utah Lake. These are seldom birded areas for us, so we greatly appreciated Merrill's guidance, as well as the time he spent pre-running the trip, and his expertise.
