Oct 25, Birds of Big Water, 8 am – 3 pm

Late October is a time of year when many of the later migrant birds are arriving in Cache Valley, especially the birds of big water. Join us as we seek out some of these species on the reservoirs and lakes of Cache County, including Hyrum Reservoir, Cutler Reservoir, and perhaps the Logan Sewage Lagoons. We’ll be looking for new arrivals of the season such as Common Loons and Red-breasted Mergansers, and also trying to find a local rarity such as a Pacific Loon, a scoter, or a Red Phalarope. Bring a scope if you have one. All skill levels are welcome. Meet at 8:00 AM at the parking lot between Caffe Ibis and the Logan Fire Station (50 East 150 North). We’ll plan to be back in the mid-afternoon, but we can arrange an earlier drop off if requested.
