Expert helps open eyes to birding world

18 Apr

“To be fair, many desert places do indeed fit the description of “exotic.” But aside from striking vistas and mesmerizing openness, the Great Basin largely lacks natural and man-made embellishment. Here, true beauty is unassuming and often requires a closer look. Most desert dwellers understand that often the most worthwhile attractions between the Wasatch and the Sierra Nevada ranges aren’t advertised by billboards or neon signs.”

Thanks to Nathan Darnall, FWS ecologist and president of Great Salt Lake Audubon, for introducing me to birding.
