We traveled to this refuge while on our way to the Grand Teton's in late June. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgable on the area and the different types of bird species being seen and best of all where we could see a Great Horned Juvenile and its parent. We were eaten alive bye the mosquitos and black flies... 更多
I had not been to the refuge since the flood took out the old visitor center. The new center is spacious, with interesting interactive displays, and great hands on things for kids. There is a short trail behind the center through a marshy area, great for little ones. The 12 mile loop is well graded, and was dry in June.... 更多
I have been going to the refuge for 70 years. As a boy, my friend and I hitched hiked to Brigham and then hiked the 14 miles to the refuge. After walking around the dike, we walked back to Brigham City and hitched a ride home. In 1984, the Great Salt Lake destroyed the refuge, but it is back in... 更多
First thing: visitor centre is closed both Sunday and Monday. Pity they don't mention Monday on the site. Second thing: Diverse numbers of birds to see easily on the loop road. Third thing: prepare to get eaten alive if you dare step out of your car. Even dropping the window to try and get a clear shot was issuing a... 更多
Great day birding on the auto tour, and saw many, many birds very easily. The education center is very good with great information and great gift shop too. On top of this there are some trails to walk and the place is specatularlly scenic.
We have a bunch of grandkids and whenever they come from out of town to visit they like us to take them to "visit the birds" We always have great time. Lots of interesting bird facts and displays.
We drove out and did the loop.. Not sure if we should, as it was muddy and our car seldom gets off the pavement, but it was fine, and a peaceful respite from the highway. We didn't see a lot of birds, but I'm sure they were in the tall bulrushes. We kept looking for the center that we saw... 更多
I love the drive out to the refuge. It was about a 3 hour round trip from Roy since we stopped a lot to take pictures. We have gone several times. May is the best month as April has too much water and by June everything is drying out. We sure to have your camera ready you never know what... 更多
Having lived in Northern Utah for years, I am embarrassed to say that I had until recently never visited the Bear River Migratory Waterfowl Refuge - a.k.a. The BIrd Refuge. What an amazing place. There are plenty of interesting things to see if you have 15 minutes for a rest break, or 15 hours for a day trip. I had... 更多
