Bear River Refuge – Sept 2019

Sunday September 22, 2019

On my way home from Price I was making such good time that I decided to go round my favorite refuge. The phragmites controlled burn happened in one of the units a few days prior so there was quite a bit of burned vegetation. This did not stop the wading birds and swallows from feasting on bugs and fish. The ibises were glorious. – Jenny
