Albino and Leucistic Birds:

Our Albino & Leusistic Bird Photo Collection. keeps on growing!  If you get a new photo, please send it in.  We now have at least 26 species in our "albino" collection. Here's a  List of our species

Update of pages showing recently-hatched birds:

A feature article from ten years ago, highlighted photos in our Photo Gallery of 35 species of recently hatched birds -- the cutest birds you'll ever see! The number is now up to 105 species (in 2022).  Here are links to the updated pages.

eBird Links for our Birding Places:
There are description and directions to over 500 birding places on the Utah Birds website.  We now have links to the eBird sightings for almost all of them, both in the "index of birding sites" and on  the individual pages describing the places to bird found on the County Pages.  Through each eBird link you can also find other eBird information for nearby places, by using the "Hotspot map,"  so once you've found one place you can easily find information for other places in the area.
Types of Bird Nests:
Many excellent photos of bird nests, birds nesting and young birds fresh from their nests, have been sent in by Utah photographers.  A new article on "Bird Nests and Nesting Schemes" with some of these photos and information about eleven different types of nests or nesting schemes has been posted on our website.  A big "thank you" to the photographers who have shared their photos with us.
Hanna Hummingbird Haven:
The 2021 "Hanna Hummingbird Haven" year has started at the cabin of Dena & Jim Reid in Hanna, Utah,. The Rufus males start leaving after the 1st week of August, so the end of June through July is the best time to visit .  Visitors are welcome!
(Note: ."I need to remind people I do not have public restrooms available and that they need to visit the Hanna store at mile post 37 for those necessities.…I do not let anyone inside our home. And the river at the moment is fast , strong, and cold dangerous…") 
      (Here are two slow-motion videos by Paul Hunsaker:  Video 1 Video 2)

Feature Article:
Here's a series of pictures taken by Ernest Harlow of a Barn Swallow nest in Brigham City.  This shows everything from eggs, to featherless hatchings, to downy chicks, to feathered chick ready to go, to the empty feather-lined nest.

Utah Winter Gull Identification:
At the October meeting of the Utah County Birders, Dennis Shirley gave a presentation on identifying "Utah Winter Gulls," which has now been adapted and expanded for the Utah Birds website.  It's become a "work in process" and we'd like you to take a look and give us some feedback on how we can improve it -- and you may be able to learn to better identify the winter gulls in Utah at the same time.
Bird Humor:
Here are some links to the "Bird Humor" section of our feature pages:
  - "Change is in the Air"  (A stealthy Starling is up to something).
  - "Mom's Favorite"  (How you can tell you're NOT).
  - "Snack-lifting "  (A clever little gull is hooked on junk food).
  - "Heavenly Smiley Faces"  (Smiley faces are use in emails and...)

(A special "thanks" to the Salt Lake Birders for a generous contribution in 2008 and to the Utah Ornithological Society for a similar generous contribution in 2013 to support this website).
