I think this BARN OWL has seen better days too #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco #owl

A Sharp-shinned Hawk and Black-chinned Hummingbird were among the 29 birds we captured in Red Butte Canyon today! #birds #birdbanding #redbuttecanyon #utahbirders

What a strange turkey... GREATER SAGE-GROUSE strutting its stuff #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco

Some nights you find FLAMMULATED OWL nests... active nests in natural cavities beat nest boxes any day! #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco #flammulatedowl

"I'm sorry I see goshawks and you do not--and in *insert any city name here*". Truer words have never been spoken about NORTHERN GOSHAWKS... this however was no "urban goshawk", and was really seen! #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco

This papa arboricola subspecies PURPLE MARTIN watched for me to look away just long enough for him to leave the cavity #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco

Is there any question why WESTERN TANAGER is my favorite bird? I didn't think so... #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco

Another MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD from the weekend. Just love the color #Bluebird #utah #utahbirders #birds #mwbirdco

The WILSON'S PHALAROPE migration is truly a spectacle... that's the only way to describe 1/2 a million birds in the middle of a desert! #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco

My not-so-graceful release of a pelican. 😂 (It is expected for them not to fly right away, they usually swim around for a while and then will fly). This is Kevin the pelican, who we trapped and put a gps backpack on to monitor his migratory routes. The coolest part is, you can go online and view his (and other) Utah pelican routes online! Simply google search Utah Pelitracks, and it should be the first link. Or enter the link, https://wildlife.utah.gov/pelican_webmap/

I almost deleted this one since my focus was off but the angle of the shot made the barbed wire look super cool! 😝

Winner winner, caterpillar dinner! Watched this FLAMMULATED OWL with a moth followed up by this humongous #caterpillar (really just an inch long) #utah #birds #mwbirdco #utahbirders #flammulatedowl

One Bajillion WILSON'S PHALAROPE in front of Antelope Island #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco

The RED-NECKED PHALAROPE were hugging the outflow from the south side to the north side of the causeway crating this cool delineation between the current and the calm #utah #utahbirders #birds #mwbirdco #sunset #utahsunset

Who needs an SLR? Right? I really wish I wouldn't have forgot my camera tonight but the #iphone sis alright catching these RED-NECKED PHALAROPE at #sunset #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco #utahsunset

All Audubon chapters over 100 years old line up at the National Audubon Convention. Among them, our own president. Did you know #greatsaltlakeaudubon is over 100 years old? We are the oldest conservation group in the state of Utah at 106 years-old! We were also one of the first Audubon Chapters formed in the United States! #nationalaudubonsociety #utahbirders #utah #saltlakecity #environmentalism #conservation

What a lazy PINE GROSBEAK. Here we are hoofing it up the mountain, and it's taking the ski lift #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco

I might have overexposed this PLUMBEOUS VIREO just a bit... and you can only edit it so much before it looks just as bad in a different way #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco

It's even funnier when they take flight to gain momentum... #brineflies #statebird #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco #californiagull

It's pretty dang hilarious watching the CALIFORNIA GULLS take off running down the beach with their mouth open through the clouds of #brineflies #utah #birds #utahbirders #mwbirdco #statebird
