Bird watching at Desert Lake


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Division of Wildlife Resources sponsored a water bird viewing event on Saturday, May 5 at Desert Lake in Emery County from 8 a.m. until noon. The event commemorated national celebrations of Migratory Bird Day and Wetlands Day. The event was free to the public. DWR biologists were on-hand with spotting scopes and binoculars to assist the public with waterfowl identification.

Desert Lake is located east of the town of Elmo. Desert Lake serves as a rest area for many species of birds during migration. These include ducks, geese, sandpipers, herons, gulls, terns, pelicans, and cranes. Desert Lake is managed by the DWR for the benefit of migratory waterfowl. Normally closed to public access, the lake also serves as a sanctuary for nesting birds.

DWR officials reported the bird viewing was sparsely attended due to adverse weather conditions.
