When yesterday morning dawned there were clear skies and cool temps and Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge was calling. What can I say, I listened! On the auto tour route thousands and thousands of Tundra Swans were calling and sitting out on the ice or feeding in the open water. I took a short cell phone video. (turn up your volume)
I did see a few Rough-legged Hawks that were skittish and so were the ducks in the area and maybe now that hunting season is over the ducks will settle down some. I also saw a Coyote on the way to the auto tour route.
On the way out of the refuge in an area I have heard called Curlew Flats I spotted this juvenile Northern Harrier on the ground and was able to take a few images of it before it lifted off with prey in its talons.
It was a beautiful day.
Life is good.
