Adventure at the Great Salt Lake Nature Center at Farmington Bay ~ 2/18/13

Today I spent the day visiting birds at the Great Salt Lake with a friend of mine who is a photographer.  The first place we visited was the Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve.  This is an awesome place open year around (according to their website) but the Visitor’s  Center doesn’t open until April.  We didn’t linger as there were some very small children enjoying the day with their moms and in their enthusiasm (the children’s) the birds were keeping their distance.  I did see these lovely horses on the way in and out.

We also saw these awesome crows.

Our next stop was at the Great Salt Lake Nature Center at Farmington Bay.  Right before we arrived we saw this lovely hawk.
