Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in December - II.




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. 








In November the Rough-legged Hawks migrate to the refuge.








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!

  6. The lake is more attractive than the mountain, through the flora and fauna visible in the photos.

  7. Un bello lugar con los colores ocres del otoño. Me encanta la primera fotografía, la vegetación parece flotar entre las cumbres y el agua del río.
    Un abrazo y cuidate.
