Utah is home to a wonderful variety of birds, from majestic raptors like Bald Eagles to shore birds like pelicans and egrets to magpies, quails, hummingbirds, and ibis…and everything in between.
In the mountains, you will encounter grouse, chickadees, blue jays, and finches. For shore birds, Antelope Island is your destination.
The best way to spy a bird is to hone in on its birdsong (particularly in spring) and pay attention to rustling in the surrounding area. For photos, a good zoom capability will be invaluable.
