Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge set against a dramatic backdrop formed by the Wasatch Mountains.
It's hunting season at the refuge now, but I rarely meet hunters and have no idea where they hunt ducks.
Last Sunday I finally saw a group of hunters with a dog in the small motorboat heading to the mouth of the river and then disappearing into the thickets.
The Bear River is especially attractive when the day is clear and the sky is blue.
An American Kestrel decided to perch on the signboard as if he was going to advertise the refuge.
That, of course, was very nice of him but we already are well known as a hotspot for diversity and/abundance of birds, especially in early spring and summer.
Generally, life is good!
