Upcoming Field Trips
Our annual Utah County Big Month is
the month of May this year. Last year we did April and saw 146 bird species
on the eleven half-day field trips. May should be the "biggest" month of the
year, and we should see in the neighborhood of 160-180 species. This UCB Big
Month will be the fourth month we've done. If there is one month of the year
that you must be out birding, it is May. So get some sleep the next couple
of nights and be ready to go on Wednesday. Like years past, it will be great
