Bear River Refuge – March 2019

Friday March 22

Once again at my favorite refuge…

So excited to spot this Hooded merganser! A first sighting at the refuge for me.

I’ve never seen a Common merganser at the refuge either.

I was trying to get a good photo of the Ring necked pheasant. It took looking at the picture on my computer to see the Rough legged hawk on the fence and the Western meadowlark in flight.

Long billed curlew

Northern shovelers

Northern pintails

Oh so very many American white pelicans
