Green-tailed Towhee

Summit County, Utah 5 Day Birding & Photography Tour

August 16-21, 2021

Cost: $1250.00 per person double occupancy. Contact for single supplement costs.

Join Archaeopteryx Birding & Nature Tours in Summit county, Utah, just east of Salt Lake City. From mountains, to creeks, and pine forests, several species of birds and wildlife call Utah their home. All birding locations are within an hour drive of the Park City, where we will be staying in one of the resorts. This tour will have plenty of opportunity for bird, wildlife, macro, and landscape photography and we will try and leave the field with enough time in the evening for a relaxed dinner and photo editing. Plus we’ll visit the Homestead Crater hot springs for a relaxing soak in the 96-degree spring water. Plan to arrive Monday, August 16th and arrange airport pickup to begin a fresh day of birding on Tuesday, the 17th. Here are the various locations we will be visiting and the species we’ll expect to find at each. Park city: White-throated Swift, Violet-green Swallow, Brewer’s Sparrow, Rufous Hummingbird, Black-chinned Hummingbird, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Lesser Goldfinch, Brewer’s Blackbird, Bushtit, and Green-tailed Towhee. Deer Valley Ski Resort:
Red-naped Sapsucker, Olive-sided Flycatcher, Western Wood-pewee, Clark’s Nutcracker, Fox Sparrow, Dusky Grouse, Cassin’s Finch, MacGillivray’s Warbler, Mountain Chickadee, Black-billed Magpie. Rockport Reserve and SP: California Gull, Red-necked Phalarope, Baird’s Sandpiper, Western Grebe. Big Cottonwood Canyon- Silver Lake: Pine Grosbeak, Northern Goshawk, Dusky Flycatcher, Broad-tailed Hummingbird, Golden Eagle, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Steller’s Jay, Red Crossbill, Pine Siskin.
