Antelope Island State Park: This is the largest island in the Great Salt Lake. Get your "lifer" Chukar here (I did!). The causeway over to the island has shorebirds along the side of the road. The park itself has grassland birds like Sage Sparrow and Sage Thrasher.
Bear River: August sees spectacular numbers of waterfowl and shorebirds at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge at the north end of the Great Salt Lake. Birding has recovered nicely since the floods of the mid-1980s.
Dinosaur National Monument: Discover prehistoric "birds" as well as modern birds. This arid, rocky area is home to Black-chinned and Broad-tailed Hummingbirds. Riparian areas along the Green River are productive as well.
Ouray National Wildlife Refuge: This wetlands is smack in the middle of the desert. Waterbirds are the specialty here. Be sure to scan the water's edge around Pelican Lake.
Wasatch-Cache National Forest: The Cache Valley near Logan and nearby forest are amazing. You may find Williamson's Sapsucker, Three-toed Woodpecker Pine Grosbeak and Red Crossbill, Virginia's Warbler and Calliope Hummingbirds. Drive up the Mill Creek Canyon.
Featured Hot Spot :
Wintertime is when you will find thousands of Snow Geese, Sandhill
Cranes and maybe even a Ross' Goose. The riparian habitat along the Rio Grande River holds
many Curve-billed and Crissal Thrashers.
