Thousands of Phalaropes Over the Great Salt Lake


It's only the begging of summer but the shore birds of North America have already begun their fall migration. 

You can see hundreds of thousands shore birds at the Great Salt Lake and among them are Red-necked and Wilson's Phalaropes. They show up at the lake to feed and rest before continuing their journey.

Wilson's and Red-necked phalaropes feed on brine flies and brine shrimps.

I was very blessed this morning to see and photograph the incredible spectacle of thousands of phalaropes that were flying over the Great Salt Lake.

Generally, life is good!

  3. No había visto tanta cantidad de aves en el cielo, como las que he visto en tus fotografías.

  4. La verdad es que, como tu dices, es un verdadero espectáculo ver esa bandadas miles de aves. Lo que no esperaba es que fuera ya un proceso migratorio.
