Another stop at Antelope Island.

I’m not sure if these are horned grebes or western grebes. Can anyone confirm?

Tons of northern shovelers along the causeway into Antelope Island on our second trip.

We saw a lot more bison and longhorns on our second trip that week.

After leaving Bear River Refuge, we decided to stop by Antelope Island again before heading back to Salt Lake City. We drove around to the other side of the island this time and hiked up to Buffalo Point.  From this view, you can see around most of the island. We could see a storm heading our way and just made it back to our car before the bottom fell out.

Pretty faces of the pied grebes. That last one thought I couldn’t see him behind the reeds.

A very young anhinga that must have been born at the preserve.  She must have been a late summer baby. She still had her pin feathers.  She was right along the boardwalk.

A few things at Largo Nature Preserve. It was quiet at the small park in late October.
