Illustrated Birds of Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge (a National Wildlife Refuge NWR) in Utah. Published by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS).

Some birds are easy to see. Others are secretive and hard to find. Do you know a bird species that only comes out at night? Good bird watchers look for many different clues to learn if a bird lives in the area. They listen for songs and calls. They look for nests, tracks, pellets or droppings. Keep your eyes and ears open and you may see, hear or find evidence of all the birds on this list. Circle the musical notes if you hear the bird sing or call. Circle the nest if you see any signs of the bird. Circle the binoculars if you see the bird.
