October 5th, Fall shorebird migration

Along with gulls and flycatchers, fall shorebirds are one of the more difficult groups to identify. This trip will focus on finding and identifying as many species of migrating shorebirds as we can, and is timed to coincide with the best chances of seeing rarer species like Pectoral Sandpiper, Black-bellied Plover, Stilt Sandpiper, and other more common shorebirds. We’ll meet at the parking lot in front of Cafe Ibis (50E, 150N, Logan) at 9:00 AM and carpool from there. Our destinations for the day will depend on water levels around the valley, but might include Hyrum Reservoir, Sue’s Ponds, and the Amalga Barrens.
