We saw so many amazing birds today at the Farmington Bay WMA! So far I have seen 120 different bird species in Utah this month! #utahbirds #farmingtonbay

Had to drag my brother out of bed to get the photos🔥😂 • These pictures were taken next to farmington bag right next to the bird refuge, I took a field trip to the visitors center when I was younger and I was taught all about the birds that they were helping survive • I love the mountains and fields that we have near us to admire the beauty of the world and even though it was a little cold because of the wind I had my @spikeball ambassadors windbreaker to keep me warm #walking #farmingtonbay #farmington #bay #sanctuary #saturday #brothers #beauty #earth #mountains #adventure

The tiny Common Yellowthroat has one big voice !! The male's "wichety-wichety-wichety" call is currently ringing loud and clear through wetlands and grasslands across North America, where this species breeds during warm months. Males have a black mask, yellow throat, and olive back, and while the females have no mask they do have yellow throats.These itty-bitty birds are incredibly elusive, and are often heard without being seen. They were one of the first species of bird catalogued from the new world, when a specimin from Maryland was described by Carl Linnaeus in 1766. #ornithology #wildlifebiology #wildlifephotography #science #biology #birds #birding #utah #wetlands #nature #naturephotography #outdoorphotography #adventures #grasslands #wildlife #cute #sciencecommunication #mountains #throughbinoculars #spring #migration #springtime #animals #birdphotography #beaUtahful #farmingtonbay #publiclands #ecology #northamerica #birdwatching

One great thing about Utah is you can find incredible nature scenes and wildlife pretty much in your backyard. Here are some of my shots from yesterday to prove that. . . . #Utah #SLC #FarmingtonBay #801 #nature #outdoors #wildlife #owl #crane #butterflies #egrets #pelican #beautahful #utahphotographer #canon

Pied-billed Grebe family at Farmington Bay. We've been lucky enough to observe these babies over the course of a few weeks now, it's been fun watching them grow! The chicks hide alone in the reeds while their parents forage for food under water. The streaky black and orange pattern of the immature grebes, almost reminiscent of a leopard, helps break up their outline in wetland habitats. When the parents return, the young emerge from their respective hiding places to beg for food. It only takes 25-62 days for young to become independent, so these little ones will be on their own very soon ! #birding #birds #birdwatching #birdphotography #nature #naturephotography #wildlifebiology #wildlife #wildlifephotography #environmentaleducation #environmentalscience #spring #animals #babyanimals #chicks #utah #publiclands #outdoors #ThroughBinoculars #beaUtahful #farmingtonbay #cute #camoflauge #wetlands #ecology #ornithology #naturalist #family #sciencecommunication #wildlifephotographer

Sandhill Crane family at Farmington Bay. We observed both parents with two chicks as they foraged through this wetland pasture, with each parent taking responsibility for one chick. While they all stayed within the same general area, they would split up periodically as the adults searched for worms and large insects to feed to the chicks. Sandhill Crane families stay together through autumn migration and into spring, when the young finally separate from their parents at nine to ten months old. Family groups combine and create large flocks on their wintering grounds, sometimes numbering in the tens of thousands. These ancient birds have completed their migration across the plains of North America for thousands, maybe even millions of years - as the oldest fossil of a Sandhill crane is estimated to be a whopping 2.5 million years old. #birding #birds #ornithology #throughbinoculars #ecology #environmentaleducation #environmentalscience #migration #science #wildlifebiology #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #sandhillcrane #wildlife #nature #outdoors #utah #beaUtahful #animals #getoutdoors #publiclands #farmingtonbay #wetlands #environmentalscientist #naturalist #spring #babyanimals #cute

This Drake wood duck didn’t seem to be bothered by me laying down near the water and he walked right up on the bank when I got this shot.

Yellow-headed Blackbird male. These guys have a croaking call similar to the sound of a rusty gate opening ! They are one of my favorite birds to spot! #birding #birdwatching #birds #wildlife #nature #animals #wetlands #getoutside #birdphotography #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #outdoors #utah #beaUtahful #farmingtonbay #spring #summer #blackbirds #yellowheadedblackbird #publiclands

This handsome Harrier had a tough day defending himself out at Farmington Bay, UT. Aside from constant blackbird attacks, a very big Swainson’s Hawk wanted his vole. The blood on his belly is from clutching it tight. But this is his hunting ground, and he emerged victorious and well fed as always! #harrierhawk #northernharrier #marshharrier #utahwildlifephotographer #harrier #farmingtonbaybirdrefuge #utahwildlife #elite_raptors #wildutah #yourbestbirds #birdbrilliance #pocketbirds #nikonwildlife #nikonwildlife2020 #utahdwr #farmingtonbay #pocket_birds_flying #audobon #audobonsociety #raptorsofinstagram #utahraptors #utahbirdsofprey #utahbirds #yourbestbirds #best_birds_of_ig #feather_perfection #bird_captures #outdoorphotography #bestbirdsofinstagram #birdlife @audubonrockies @nationalwildlife @wildlifeartjh

Getting outside into nature yesterday, inspired me to do a bit more today. A quick journey up to Farmington Bay did not disappoint. Thankfully, this early in the season, the bugs weren't unbearable. Much of the wildlife was off at a good distance, but with a long lens and some patience, I was happy to have found several subjects willing to pose for me, including: Great Tailed Grackle, Yellow-Headed Blackbird, lots of Red-Winged Blackbirds, a male American Barn Swallow, North American Kestrel, White Faced Ibis, and several American White Pelicans. #bird #birdphotography #birding #birdsofinstagram #birdlife #wildlife #conservation #ornithology #bird_capture #bird_captures #audobonsociety #nature #wildlifephotography #birding #birdwatching #farmingtonbay #farmingtonbaywaterfowlmanagementarea #spring #utah #utahgram #werutah #experienceutah #utahphotographer #utahphotography #sigma150600
