In the News!

A few weeks ago, Stephanie and I saw a Mew Gull that was Cache County's second record, and its first record in 17 years. Last Thursday, our find was discussed in part of Bill Fenimore's "Bird Sightings" column in the Salt Lake Tribune! Here is a link to the article (6MB).

Since my last post, I've found two Wild Turkeys in Cove on my way to a conference in Montana, and four Sandhill Cranes with Stephanie after I got back. These may be the same four cranes that were seen in the area on the Christmas Bird Count. Since this species usually migrates to warmer climates during the winter, it is nice to know that they've made it through the worst of it!
