Cache County, Utah
(Emails from Craig Fosdick, 25 May 2009)
I found a GREEN HERON this morning at the Mendon Rd bridge over the
Logan River, in Cache Co. I was able to digiscope a few shots and will be
sending a couple to the Utah Birds website (sorry, I don't have a
photo-hosting page of my own). The bird did not linger; after <10 minutes
it took off and headed north, downstream, and out of sight.
To get to the
bridge from Logan, drive west out of Logan on Utah 30 (200 N). Make a
left on 1000 W and stay on 1000W until you reach the first traffic light.
At the light, make a right and head west on 600 S for about a mile. Just
after you pass 1900 W, 600 S will bend to the left as it
crosses the Logan R. The bird was seen on the south side of the road,
perhaps 100-200 ft back from the bridge. It was being mobbed by Red-winged
Good birding, Craig.
