Bear River Refuge – Feb 2019

Friday February 15, 2019

I needed to catch a plane at the Salt Lake City airport Saturday morning so I maximized my birding options and drove down Friday evening so I could bird the Bear River Refuge. I love that it is located between my home and the airport. I have rarely come out to the refuge in Jan or Feb so this was an interesting time for me.
