Bear River Bird Refuge

We took a drive through the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge.  It's been on the list for a while, but there always seems to be things that become higher priority.  It's a great place for a Sunday afternoon drive, or anytime for that matter.  We took the Forest Street exit in Brigham City, turned west, and drove what felt like forever.  Finally we reached the loop road in the heart of the refuge.
The loop road is dirt and one-way.  We saw countless birds, some of which looked pretty neat.  I'm not a bird person, so I can't tell you what kind they were other than some kind of ibis, some pelicans, seagulls, etc. 
 It was really cool too when the blue herons would fly away as you drove along. 
 The bird refuge is home to more than just birds- we saw this nice young buck hiding in the grasses.
