Jan 2013

David Allan (20 Jan 2013) - [Oak City, UT] - I had a COMMON REDPOLL visiting the feeders in my Oak City backyard on Saturday 1/19. I have not seen it today. He might have been a one day wonder like the gray-crowned rosy finch that stopped by on 12/24.

May 2012

David J. Allan (30 May 2012) - ...On Sunday, 5/27, I had a female ANNA'S HUMMINGBIRD visiting my yard hummingbird feeders (Oak City, Millard Co). That was a first for me in Millard Co and my yard. Also had a Red-breasted Grosbeak spend the day in my backyard. Another bird of interest was a leucistic-pied Mourning Dove. Unfortunately, none of these were seen again Monday. Sunday was very colorful. I recorded seventeen species in the yard. Besides those listed above, I recorded Lazuli Bunting, Bullock's Oriole, Western Tanager, California Quail, House Finch, American Goldfinch, Lesser Goldfinch, Black-headed Grosbeak, Black-chinned Hummingbird, Barn Swallow, American Robin, Cooper's Hawk, House Sparrow, and Eurasian Collared-dove. The RBGR seem to be becoming a spring regular to my yard - three of the past four years.
   --On my way home from work yesterday evening, I saw my FOS Blue Grosbeak. I was traveling along Sink Road near Lyndyl, Millard Co.

Feb 2012

Oliver Hansen (25 Feb 2012) - [Delta-Gunnison Bend Reservoir-Clear Lake Reservoir] - Several cars worth of Utah Co. birders (about 15 people) made their way out to the Snow Goose Festival today. We birded at Gunnison Bend reservoir, Clear Lake WFMA, and the small reservior marked on google maps as DMAD reservoir. We found a "small" flock of maybe 3-4 thousand SNOW and ROSS'S geese early in the morning in some fields outside of town. Most of the access/dike roads in Clear Lake were closed for the season, but we did drive around to a few different spots and find a few flocks of waterfowl...
   --Some other highlights for me (besides the geese and good company) included seeing 10 SANDHILL CRANES near Lynndyl, Utah on the way into Delta. I saw 2 CRANES on the way out at the same location in the afternoon. Another was a flyover PRARIE FALCON at Clear Lake WFMA. ... Great day. Another find that came up as a seasonal rarity in ebird was the handful of CINNAMON TEAL we saw at Clear Lake WFMA.

Oct 2011

Rick Fridell (15 Oct 2011) - Yesterday afternoon (10/14), Kevin Wheeler and I located a female Scarlet Tanager at Beck Spring in Snake Valley, Millard Co., UT. The tanager was keeping company with a Western Tanager for nice direct comparisons. Both tanagers spent most of their time at the top of large poplars flycatching wasps and bees.

Jan 2011

Eric Petersen (23 Jan 2011) - Yesterday my wife (Holly) and I had the great pleasure of going out with Hawk-watch to help survey numbers of raptors in the Fillmore area as part of the Citizen Science project. We were led by Hawk-watch’s science director Markus Mika Ph. D and field researcher Al Hinde. ... We had a blast spotting and identifying a number of different raptors. .... There were a few close calls with a Golden Eagle and a couple of Red-tailed Hawks .... I was the only one that was interested in non raptor species so it made it interesting when I would stop to see Horned Larks in the road or White-crowned Sparrows in the bushes.

Flora M. Duncan (3 Jul 2009) - Esther and I have had a big day in Millard County. We had a nice list--47 Birds--including a pair of Eastern Phoebes on the fence at the corner of 2500 North 7500 West, Abraham. I don't know what is considered righteous documentation. Sorry we did't take a camera  with us--not a neat picture as we had a few years ago with the
Yellow-billed Cuckoo at Fool's Creek.

David Allan (2 Jul 2009) - I just noticed my first Rufous Hummingbird of the season in my Oak City backyard. Guess southern migration is underway.

Lu Giddings (25 Apr 2009) - A Stilt Sandpiper in non-breeding plumage was seen in an irrigated field about five miles north of Delta at about 2 p.m. this afternoon. It was feeding with long-billed dowitchers, greater and lesser yellowlegs, and western and least sandpipers, which provided a nice opportunity for comparison and contrast.

Sep 2008

Mar 2007

Eric Huish (3 Mar 2007) - Lu Giddings led the Utah County Birders on a Field Trip today to see the Snow Geese in Delta. We then headed to Clear Lake WMA (south of Delta). Much of the area was frozen but there was a little open water that was filled with waterfowl - mostly Pintail, Redhead and Wigeon. After scoping through this flock for a while we spotted a Drake Eurasian Wigeon. He was hard to follow through the flock of American Wigeon and Redheads but eventually everyone in the group got a look at him.

Sue Hinde (2 Mar 2007) - I actually snuck away and took a quick trip down to Gunnison. Yesterday, March 1, I found one Cackling Goose in with about 15 regular (?) Canada geese. They were feeding in a yard bordering on the reservoir. I watched from my car for about 20 minutes from a distance of about 30 feet. It is really a very small goose; tiny bill and very rounded head. This one avoided the other geese and finally took off and flew out onto the reservoir with all the beautiful Snow geese. I also saw a pair of Hooded Mergansers which did not fly and allowed me to observe them up close and personal.

Jan 2007

Stephen Carlile (24 Feb 2007) - Just returned from the Salt Lake Birder's trip to the Delta Snow Goose Festival.

Terry Sadler - Yesterday, June 1, I observed a Clay-colored Sparrow while doing a Breeding Bird Survey in the West Desert. The sparrow was in Millard Co. on the South side of the Black Rock-Garrison Road 4 miles East of Crystal Peak. I first heard the bird giving a 3 or 4 single-note raspy buzz song similar to a Brewer's Sparrow but much shorter. I then saw the sparrow with its' strongly contrasting head markings and pale lores. Unfortunately my camera is in the shop being repaired.

May 2004

Larry Tripp (31 May 2004) - I got back late last night from birding the west desert area of Utah from Beaver Co. to Juab Co. There were several good birds out there which Dana already reported the birds that were seen on Saturday. The best bird was the male Black-throated Blue Warbler that I saw on Sat. afternoon in a dense thicket of Russian Olive trees with a spring fed pond and a small steam running through them. I'm not sure what the area is called but it is about 30 miles S. of Callao,7 miles E. of Gandy. We tried to relocate it Sat. night and I tried again on Sunday but couldn't find it.

Dana Green (30 May 2004) - Larry Tripp and I birded Millard County migrant traps yesterday from dawn to dark. The vagrants are out there. We found four. I saw Red-Eyed Vireo, and Northern Waterthrush. Larry saw a male Black Throated Blue Warbler and we both saw a young male Rose Breasted Grosbeak. We, of course, tried to relocate the ones we missed, but could not. The vagrants are out there, but as usual in spring they are not staying around.

Larry Tripp (22 May 2004) - Today I was at Kaufman Ranch and a lot of birds were there. I didn't arrive until 10:00 and the wind really started to blow by about 12:30. The best birds were a Northern Parula, 1 or 2 Black and White Warblers ( all singing males) and a Female Rose-Breasted Grosbeak. There was also a lot of western migrants I just wish the wind wouldn't have started blowing so hard before I could bird the whole area.

Sep 2003

Pomera Fronce (14 Sept 2003) - Dana, Julie and I birded Kaufman Ranch today with the prize bird being a Northern Parula. Other birds of interest were a Short-eared Owl, Ring-necked Duck, Yellow-breasted Chat, MacGillivray's Warblers, lots of beautifully colored Nashville Warblers, Wilson's Warblers and one Townsend's Warbler. We saw roughly 35 species on the ranch during our three hours of birding.

May 2003

David Allan - Eurasian Collared-Doves have found their way to Delta (Millard Co.), Utah.  I serendipitously stumbled onto what appeared to my unaided eyes to be two  of them Tuesday (5/27) evening after making a wrong turn. I returned to the  area Wednesday (5/28) evening with binoculars, relocated the two doves, and  confirmed by sight and song that they are indeed Eurasian Collared-Doves.
The doves were observed both days perched on utility wires and poles along  100 West, between 100 North and 300 North, in Delta. The time of  observation was between 6:45 pm and 7:05 pm.

KC Childs - (~ 17 Feb) ... Eric started doing an imataion Pygmy Owl call to see if we could see any Chickadees. No success. then we started to follow some fresh Turkey tracks. That is when we heard the Pygmy Owl start to call back. We then started walking up the canyon trying to find it. We ran upon Creepers and Ruby Crowned Kinglets, but could only hear the Pygmy Owl. After over an hour of looking we couldn't find it. As we started walking towards the car a Pygmy Owl flew out of a Juniper Tree right in front of me. It landed in a big Cottonwood along the creek. It stayed there and allowed us some amazing views...We then headed home and saw one of the best looking Ferruginous Hawks in the Leamington area...
