Did you know there are 256 species of birds that inhabit Utah? That is a lot of birds – to many to introduce in one blog-post.
Wouldn’t it be fun to create a list of birds and take the challenge to check them all off your list? I wonder how long that would take!!
Utah Bird Records Committee (UBRC) lists rare bird sightings in Utah. One of the rare birds that were sighted was called a :
The black scoter or American scoter is a large sea duck, 43 to 49 cm in length. Together with the common scoter M. nigra, it forms the subgenus Oidemia; the two are sometimes considered conspecific.
Scientific name: Melanitta americana
So when coming to Utah be sure and bring your binoculars you’ll want to try bird watching it is a lot of fun.
We skied at 4 resorts in 4 days – Snowbird, Canyons, Park City and Solitude. This was a family trip with our 2 teenage boys taken before the oldest goes of to Ohio State this fall. We loved coming back from skiing and sitting in the hot tub. The condo was great, very comfortable. Would come back here again. Thanks for everything.- Price Family - Cincinnati, Ohio
