I have already seen Sage Thrasher chicks on Antelope Island State Park and I suspect it won't be long before I see juvenile Western Meadowlarks learning how to fly and feed on their own.
  • A Snowy Egret in flight with clouds in the distance

I'm hoping to add images of Snowy Egrets to my portfolio this summer that might be taken at Farmington Bay WMA or up north at Bear River National Wildlife Refuge.

When I spotted this Mourning Dove perched on an old fence post in the morning light I couldn't resist photographing it.
  • A Short-eared Owl photobombed by a butterfly

My only wish for this image is that the butterfly had been as sharply in focus as the Short-eared Owl was but with bird photography you never know what might show up in the frame.
