Jeff Cooper (4 Dec 2012) - Eric Peterson and I covered 416 miles over a 13-hour period last Saturday in an effort to see some Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep north of Green River and to enjoy some birding in Emery and Carbon Counties. ...A highlight for me was seeing several individuals of my favorite hawk species, Buteo Regalis or Ferruginous Hawk, along Hwy 6 in both Emery and Carbon County

Jun 2011

Bryant Olsen (2 Jun 2011) - On Monday(05-30-11) thru Wednesday, I headed out to the San Rafael Swell in eastern Utah, and saw 2 INDIGO BUNTINGS near Black Dragon Canyon. Saw a Kingbird, either a Western or Cassin's. Also lots of other cool desert birds around,my favorite of which were the BLUE GROSBEAKS and YELLOW-BREASTED CHATS. Also lots of NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRDS that were going insane, singing day and night. Still lots of neo-tropical migrants moving through the desert oasis.

Sep 2010

Oliver Hansen (2 Sep 2010) - I backpacked from Fuller Bottom to the San Rafael Bridge last Friday through Sunday this past weekend. Beautiful weather! Birds were few and far between. Humans were even more scarce (we ran into 2 people in 3 days). Did see quite a few gnat-catchers, warblers, swallows, swifts, and wrens. Also a few crows (ravens maybe...they were kind of high up) mobbing a golden eagle which didn't seem to be too bothered. There was a swallow colony on one of the cliff faces that was pretty neat to see. It was a great weekend. Hope to get back down to Emery County in the future.

May 2010

Kris Purdy (22 May 2010) - I saw a report of a CRESTED CARACARA in Huntington, Emery County, last weekend, which  is worthy of consideration. The observer is Clint Peterson of Salt Lake City.

Nov 2009

Rick Fridell (4 Nov 2009) - Today (11/4/09) I received an email from some Bishop, CA birders who recently spent a week or so camping in the San Rafael Swell. On October 20, 2009, they photographed a Thick-billed Kingbird in Upper Calf Canyon, accessed from the Buckhorn Wash Road above the San Rafael Bridge, approximately 20 miles north of I-70, and west of Green River, Emery County, Utah. They sent some photos and I hope to work with them to get this significant sighting published in North American Birds and submitted to the Utah Bird Records Committee.

May 2009

Justin DeCaro  (18 May 2009) -  Kelle Reynolds (Forest Biologist) and myself, Justin DeCaro (Wildlife Technician) from the US Forest Service on the Manti-LaSal National Forest were out doing migratory bird surveys this morning. We heard what we belived to be the song of the Chesnut-sided warbler. A very distinctive...Plea Plea Plea Please to Meet You! We were unable to get a visual on the bird. Kelle is originally from Chicago, and did her Master's work in the upper woodlands of Michigan. She was very familiar with this bird, and immediately recognized that she had heard the call somewhere before. We were conducting our survey near Joes Valley Reservior in Emery County, Utah closeby the Reeder Trail.

 Jun 2007

Pat Jividen (2 Jun 2007) - Steve Carr and I saw a Whimbrel at Huntington state park. At the end of the parking lot, the boat ramp (being 12 the bird was at two) On the far side of the lake.

Jun 2005

David Wheeler (16 June 2005) - I stopped off in Green River last Sunday...and found the little park in town (the one with the missile) all aflutter with Great-tailed grackles and Eurasian collared-doves (of which there were AT LEAST four but probably considerably more--it was hard to tell with them being so active, flying in and out of the surrounding neighborhoods and hiding in trees).

Apr 2005

Joel and Kathy Beyer (17 April 2005) - Lots of nice birds in southeastern Utah this weekend, including: Green River State Park - a male Yellow-shafted Flicker and a Green Heron...

Jun 2004

Dan Cooper (24 June 2004) - ...I found a singing White-eyed Vireo in Green River, UT on 24 June. ...2 mi. north of town along "Long St.", just after dog-leg turn in road, past parked white pick-up and red bulldozer on right. In riparian scrub right where irrigation canal (drain?) crosses rd.

Feb 2004

Merrill Webb (7 Feb 2004) - Best bird in that general area was a Eurasian Collared Dove in almost the middle of downtown Huntington. Makes about seven Utah counties that bird has been observed in now, I think.

May 2003

Merrill Webb - Thursday May 29, I observed a Chestnut-sided Warbler for about a half hour from 8:15 am to 8:45 am. There was one adult male bird in a narrowleaf poplar grove along the Muddy River about 2 miles west of the Moore Junction in Emery County. Moore Junction is 5 miles north of Emery on Highway 10.  If you want to see the chesnut-sided warbler, you MUST GET PERMISSION FIRST!!! To get permission to get on the ranch, call Jim Fauver 435-749-0508

April 2000
