Along the Bear River, Utah

This photo trip started as a trip to
Smith and Edwards near
Brigham City, Utah to buy
a back pack for a sons 20th
It is one of those
places most men love to go to.
Full of new and modern camping, hunting
and outdoor stuff as well as being an army surplus
store full of gadgets and things...
Black Capped Chickadee Migrating Tundra Swans
We drove to an area where thousands of these
swans were all grouped up, resting and eating.
Judging from the volume of their calls,
they were feeling pretty good.
During summer and winter we seldom see swans
here, but in the spring and fall migrations they
come through by the thousands.
Tundra Swans
Bald Eagle
Cassins Finch
"The victory of success is half won
when one gains the habit of setting
goals and achieving them.
Even the most tedious chore will
become endurable as you parade
through each day convinced that
every task, no matter how menial or
boring, brings you closer to fulfilling
your dreams."
-Og Mandino: Author, The Greatest Salesman In the World

Just lovely. I had to stop and click on each picture to admire them "up close and personally". I'd love to see hundreds of tundra swans. They looked so cool walking on the ice. The eagle picture is a classic, and how sweet is that Cassins Finch? Delightful post today. Did you find just the right backpack? Happy 20th to your son. ~karen

Lovely selection of your birds.

The Black Capped Chickadee is very much like our Coal Tit over here.

All beautiful - but especially the tundra swans- and sure it was even more interesting in reality!
