Thought I'd share some sightings. Every October I see a fair number of Common Loons (above left) migrating along the Wasatch and the Goshute Mountains, so keep an eye out for them. Some people are puzzled by this, but if you spend time along the ridge during fall and spring migration, you will see some neat sightings or views of birds that you don't see in the valleys.
The photo in the middle (above) is part of the Rosy Finch flock of about 500 birds that spent a month or so below Grandeur Peak along the shoreline trail last winter. They were difficult to find unless something happened to scare them up, even though they were right above the trail only about 50 ft.
The photo above right is of a dragonfly in flight. I didn't think much of it, but a friend filled me in that there aren't too many dragonfly photos of them in flight. So, I thought I would share it. I have a few more interesting photos to share down the road.
