Chukars, Pheasants and more

Nery and I went exploring today, I have been wanting to go to North West Utah for a long time. A couple of days ago some one on the Utah Bird Net report some great birds in Howell Utah so I decided today was the day to finally take a trip North. We didn't have quite the great bird day that he did but it was good just the same.

Birds seen:
Red-tailed Hawk
American Kestrel
Northern Harrier
Prairie Falcon
Mourning Dove
Eurasian Collared Dove
Horned Larks everywhere
Meadow larks
Song Sparrow
Red-winged Blackbird
Brewer's Blackbird
House Finch
House Sparrow
European Starling
Ring-necked Pheasant at least 50
Chukar a group of at least 20

Here are a few pictures of our trip

We saw a lot of Deer
