During the month of August there are thousands of shorebirds and their young at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in northern Utah. Earlier this month I had an opportunity to photograph this juvenile Black-necked Stilt as it rested along the auto tour route at the refuge.
After a few moments the juvenile stilt stood up and gave a great view of its extremely long legs. It won’t be long before the stilts and some of the other shorebirds here migrate south for the winter, after all it has already snowed in the mountains.
Where did the summer go?
