Birding Utah

Birding Utah

Birding the headwaters of the Henry’s Fork River is an exhilarating experience, and the scenery is unparalleled. This is one of the few places in Utah where alpine vegetation is relatively accessible, and here in this enormous glacial cirque, it is interspersed with spruce-fir forests, large expanses of meadows, and a willow-lined riparian corridor surrounding a blue-ribbon trout stream. There is, of course, a cost: you’ll have to backpack in about 5 miles, set up camp, and plan to do another 4 or 5 miles of day hiking to bird this area. Specialty birds: Blue Grouse; White-tailed Ptarmigan; Williamson’s Sapsucker; Three-toed Woodpecker; Hammond’s Flycatcher; Clark’s Nutcracker; American Pipit; Black Rosy-Finch; Pine Grosbeak; Red Crossbill.

Other key birds: Green-winged Teal; Ring-necked Duck; Northern Harrier; Golden Eagle; Spotted Sandpiper; Gray and Steller’s Jays; Mountain Chickadee; Red-breasted, White-breasted, and Pygmy Nuthatches; Brown Creeper; Rock Wren; Ruby-crowned Kinglet; Mountain Bluebird; Hermit Thrush; Yellow-rumped and Wilson’s Warblers; Chipping, Fox, Song, Lincoln’s, and White-crowned Sparrows; Cassin’s Finch.
