TOP TEN Utah Birds

We all love Utah birds. Based on our unique experiences, from all over the state, and our distinct perspectives, we all have our personal favorites. 

So what are the TOP TEN Utah birds?

It can be very hard to narrow down all the great birds out there into a short list but the exercise of doing so is an enjoyable one. It is hard to give the proper weight to all the factors that go into a list like this. The beauty of a bird, personal experience with a specific bird, personality of a bird, uniqueness of a bird, or whatever else one could think of. The exercise of finding Utah's top ten is a worthy cause but in order to get it right we need as many people as possible to give there opinions. The bigger the sample size we can generate the more fun and accurate the results will be, so please take some time and have some fun with this one.

The only criteria we ask to impose on your lists is that the birds be species you have personally seen in Utah--we don't necessarily want the rarest birds you've seen, but the ones that you think represent Utah the best, and have been your favorites. Thank you for your participation. We are excited to see what everyone comes up with and what are the, "Utah Birders Top Ten".

That's happened a few times in the past, informally through the lists. We actually talked about that as being a future follow up--maybe something you could do through the blog? Somethign like that is interesting to look at in a year, 5 years, 10... see what did and didn't show up.
