I was able to photograph a few of the birds on my visit to Antelope Island State Park in Utah. I wished I could have stayed longer and spent more time viewing and photographing the wide variety of birds this place has to offer. Bad weather was moving in and I needed to move on to a safer place. The main thing I enjoyed about photographing the birds that I did see was that you could count on a great perch with great backgrounds.
The Great Salt Lake and surrounding wetlands are home to over 250 species of birds and form a stop over on the Pacific Flyway between South and North America. Between four and six million birds nest and feed on the lake every year. The worlds largest populations of White-faced Ibis and California Gulls make their homes near the lake. A large population of Black-necked Stilts, American Avocets and newborn pelicans are also found on and near the Great Salt Lake. Many of the birds come to Antelope Island State Park to feed on the abundant quantities of Brine flies and Brine shrimp.
