Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Antelope Island State Park
40.98 N  112.18 W
This is the largest island in the Great Salt Lake. Get your "lifer" Chukar here (I did!). The causeway over to the island has shorebirds along the side of the road. The park itself has grassland birds like Sage Sparrow and Sage Thrasher.

Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge
41.45 N   112.45 W
August sees spectacular numbers of waterfowl and shorebirds at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge at the north end of the Great Salt Lake. Birding has recovered nicely since the floods of the mid-1980s.

Dinosaur National Monument
40.54 N  109.11 W
Discover prehistoric "birds" as well as modern birds. This arid, rocky area is home to Black-chinned and Broad-tailed Hummingbirds. Riparian areas along the Green River are productive as well.

Ouray National Wildlife Refuge
39.96 N   109.93 W
This wetlands is smack in the middle of the desert. Waterbirds are the specialty here. Be sure to scan the water's edge around Pelican Lake.

Wasatch-Cache National Forest
41.87 N   111.51 W
The Cache Valley near Logan and nearby forest are amazing. You may find Williamson's Sapsucker, Three-toed Woodpecker Pine Grosbeak and Red Crossbill, Virginia's Warbler and Calliope Hummingbirds. Drive up the Mill Creek Canyon.
