2016 Birders Challenge

The Utah County Birders have announced their much acclaimed biennial "Birder Challenge" with Gold, Silver and Bronze levels of birding performance. Points will be awarded depending on the rarity of the birds seen in Utah during the year. Here are the challenge rules. Here is a spreadsheet and a PDF printout you can use if you'd like to participate.

Upcoming Field Trips

Saturday February 13, 2016: 7:30am-early afternoon. Antelope Island and yonder. Meet at the Park and Ride on the northwest corner of the American Fork Main Street exit off I-15 to carpool. Bring a State Park pass if you've got one. This trip will be weather dependent (if it's cold and snowy we might end up somewhere a little closer).

We are actively recruiting people to lead local half-day field trips, any time, any place.  If you would like to lead a field trip or if you have any ideas for this year’s field trips, please contact Bryan Shirley at - bt_shirley@hotmail.com
