Dec 2014

Bryan Shirley (6 Dec 2014) - ...From there we headed south into Iron County. Our first stop was to enjoy the petroglyphs at Parowan Gap. It was a fun stop since none of us had ever been there. There weren't a lot of birds there but we did see a Canyon Wren and had a pair of Golden Eagles Soar past. After lunch we found a Red-Shouldered Hawk on a wire just west of Cedar City on the hwy toward New Castle (right at milepot 58). It was sitting on the telephone wire and every so often would jump off the wire and dive into the brush on the side of the road. Definately the highlight of the trip! Quichipa had quite a few birds at the far South end, but the distance and heat waves made it tough to ID most of them. New Castle Res. had a Common Loon & Horned Grebe, plus a few species of common waterfowl...

Nov 2014

Suzi Holt (8 Nov 2014) - [Hwy 56, Mile Marker 58] - Red-shouldered Hawk.

Bryant Olsen (8 Aug 2013) -  Up on top of the Table Cliff Plateau at 10,000ft I found a small flock of TOWNSEND'S WARBLERS, with 1 apparent female HERMIT WARBLER mixed in, seems a bit early but there they were.

Jul 2013

Susan Lindberg (12 Jul 2013) - [Cedar City] - We went to the Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City this week and decided to kill some time birding around Duck Lake (28 miles east of Cedar City on highway #14). Got a great sequence of photos of an Osprey fishing. It took him two tries to catch it!

Jun 2011

Steve Hedges (15 Jun 2011) - A Gray Catbird has been hanging out in my backyard in Cedar City since Saturday June 10. He spends most of his time in the dense roses and willows along the Coal Creek diversion that runs along the east side of our yard but he occasionally sings from a cottonwood or Russian olive.

Sep 2009

Mark Stackhouse (29 Sep 2009) - FYI (I received this message, I can't vouch for the accuracy of the  identification, but thought I should pass it along in case it's true) [From: Andrea Taylor] "I live in Cedar City, Utah and I saw a gilded flicker today in my backyard. I identified it using the whatbird website both by sight and by call.  Thanks, Andrea Taylor"

Dec 2008

Steve Hedges (9 Dec 2008) - I had an Inca Dove at my feeders today about 2 pm. Funny seeing one walking in the snow. This is only the second record for Iron County that I am aware of. The first record was from Parowan in August 1963 by Stewart Murie.

Oct 2007

Ned Bixler (19 Oct 2007) -  4:00 PM. The Neotropic Cormorant was still at Quichipa Reservoir near Cedar City. There were also numerous ducks on the reservoir.

Joel and Kathy (19 Oct 2007) - We saw a juvenile Sabine's Gull on Quichapa Reservoir on Wednesday October 17. Also, the Neotropic Cormorant is still there.

Rick Fridell - ...in case anyone is still wondering, I observed the continuing Neotropic Cormorant at Quichapa Lake (Iron Co.) on Tuesday afternoon (10/09).

Sep 2007

Rick Fridell (19 Sep 2007) - I just received a call from Steve Summers and he located the continuing Neotropic Cormorant at Quichapa Lake (Iron Co.). The cormorant was along the southeast shore in the company of many Double-crested Cormorants. After living in Cedar City for many years, Steve is back working there this week, and I believe the Neotropic Cormorant was Steve's 260th Iron Co. bird!

Rick Fridell (14 Sep 2007) - This afternoon at approximately 6:00 pm, Larry Tripp, Peyton Cook, and I saw the Neotropic Cormorant at Quichapa Lake (Iron Co.). It was perched in a dead tamarisk on the southeast shore with many Double-crested Cormorants.

Kristin Purdy (5 Sep 2007) - Tim Avery and Glenn Barlow traveled to Quichapa Lake west of Cedar City in Iron County yesterday and saw the Neotropic Cormorant along with 5-6 Double-crested Cormorants sitting on the fenceline where other observers have seen the bird.

Jack Binch (2 Sep 2007) - chasing the Neotropic Cormorant ...The group I was with on Friday was unsuccessful. I birded with Lu and Dennis on Saturday evening and they spotted the bird five minutes after I left. I went over to talk to Ed, and he had seen the bird fifteen minutes before I got there. I went back Sunday morning with the resolve to stay all day if necessary.... Thanks to the Beyers, David Wheeler and Larene Wyss. I guess the third time is the charm. BTW, it was 10:00 when I got to see it.

Tim Avery (1 Sep 2007) - I just received secondhand information that Steve and Cindy Sommerfield had relocated the Neotropic Cormorant at Quichipa Lake in Iron County, this morning, Saturday September 1st.

Aug 2007

Larry Tripp (31 Aug 2007) - The Neotropic Cormorant was still there tonight. I got to the lake at about 5:00 pm and looked in the spot where Rick first saw it and it wasn't there. I saw a lot of Cormorants were toward the south end of the Lake so I drove down the road on the west side ( coming from Cedar City it's the first left heading south after passing the lake. I went to 2000 south and drove the dirt road towards the lake parked and walked to the shore line. Looking to the south I first saw the bird on the dike that crosses the lake close to the south end. Rick showed up shortly after that and the bird had flown to the east side and was mixed in with a lot of D C Cormorants and White Pelicans. It took us a while to relocate the bird. When it's in the open it's pretty easy to pick out but it spent some time back in the bushes where it's hard to see. We watched it until sunset.

Tim Avery (30 Aug 2007) - I received a phone call from Rick Fridell around 11:30 this morning reporting a 1st year Neotropic Cormorant at Quichipa Reservoir/Lake just west of Cedar City. He told me the bird was sitting with Double-crested Cormorants on a fence line in the water along the west shore of the lake. Rick was headed to the west desert but plans on stopping back by the lake tomorrow evening to check on the bird. Also present were an adult Bald Eagle and a juvenile Eagle sp., as well as Common and Black Terns.

Jan 2006

Kate Grandison (11 Jan 2006) - I saw a very bright colored (California 'Robin red-breast')  Red-shouldered Hawk yesterday. It was an adult perched in a cottonwood tree on the SE corner of the intersection of 2300 W and Midvalley Road on the north side of Cedar City. UTM's 0315774E 4181584N. Great bird and very cooperative.. willing to sit and let us admire it for 20 minutes .

Oct 2005

Larry Tripp (15 Oct 2005) - Birded the last couple of days with a friend visiting from Southern California, Peyton Cook. ...On the way home we stopped in Iron County at Quichapa Lake and had a male Long-tailed Duck, 2 Dunlin and a Pectoral Sandpiper...

Oct 2004

Joel and Kathy Beyer (15 Oct 2004) - We saw the pair of Lawrence's Goldfinch this morning in Kanarraville. They were in a tree on Main Street across from the LDS church. We only got to look at them for less than a minute before they flew to parts unknown. An hour of diligent searching was goldfinchless.

Steve Summers (12 Oct 2004) - This afternoon around 4 pm a visiting birder from Washington state reported to me a pair of Lawrence's Goldfinches in the town of Kanarraville, Iron Co. This is about 18 miles south of Cedar City. She saw the birds very well and certainly described this species to me. She is familiar with the species from California. They were seen along the street between the LDS Church and the Red Lodge R.V. park about a half block west of the main road...

Jun 2004

Dave Allen - While traveling from Salt Lake to Las Vegas on the 18th I saw a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher at the rest stop just to the north of Parowan on I-15. It was flying around the west area out towards the field just past the large tree.

May 2004

Kevin Wheeler (12 May 2004) - Charlie Sheard and I saw an immature Brown Pelican at Newcastle Reservoir west of Cedar City in Iron County today between 10 and 11:30. It hung out on the south side of the Reservoir, and flew from the far bank to the close bank and then settled in the water on the south end. If you go to look for it, be careful - it seemed plenty skittish for a pelican. Also there were a pair of Common Mergansers, an osprey, and a loon.

Dec 2003

Charlie Sheard (19 Dec 2003) - Today, during the Cedar City CBC, Lee Jones, Max Hodson, Don Myres and I observed a Red-breasted Sapsucker. The bird was an adult male, with plumage characteristics of both the Northern and Southern subspecies. We were able to observe the bird for approximately 30 minutes during which it remained quite still for about 20 minutes. The bird was seen in Cedar City, at the end of the paved portion of Spring Canyon Rd., which is in the general vicinity of East Canyon Park.

Jan 2002

Steve and Priscilla Summers - (Thu, 24 Jan 2002)  An imm. Red-shouldered Hawk was along the Minersville Hwy. across from the bowling ally in Cedar City today (Jan 24).
