I’ve been thinking about warmer, sunnier days lately because the weather here has included lots of gray skies and low light but at least this year we are at above average snow pack except for one area in Utah. We need every bit of the snow that has fallen this winter.
I took this image of a Western Grebe in late summer last year at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge when the marsh vegetation has started to turn gold and mornings had begun to feel crisp and invigorating. There are still young grebes begging to be fed at the refuge during the crossover from summer to fall and they can be quite noisy along the auto tour route.
Late summer into the fall is a wonderful time to be at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge because of the grand views and the thousands of birds, including juveniles, that can be found there.
Our National Wildlife Refuges are treasures we that need to keep in public hands.
Life is good.
