Field Trip / Bird List



Wednesday, December 13th, 8:00 am
HOTSPOTS: BEAR RIVER BIRD REFUGE
Leader: Sylvia Gray

The target birds this month are the Tundra Swans. This will be after the swan hunt so we hope for a more peaceful experience. Meet by 8:00am in the South-East corner of the Shopko Parking lot in Sugarhouse. Come prepared for some cool weather and bring food and drinks for an all day trip.

Call Sylvia (801-532-3486) if you plan to be there.

 


Bear River Bird Refuge (32 species)

We also saw an ermine. Since most of the snow had melted, a white ermine on a brown riverbank was easy to spot. It was a delight.
