High Species Counts at Bear River Bay

Next time you are driving on I-15 towards Brigham City past Willard Bay, please keep your eyes on the road. But if you can, take the opportunity to drive to and then stop at the ramp at the southeast end of Unit Two of the Refuge. Go on up the easy walkway to the platform. Look to the north in wonder and then look to the south in awe.

High Species Counts at Bear River Bay during the GSL Waterbird Survey from 1998 to 2001

March 13, 2007

By Wayne Martinson, Utah Important Bird Areas Coordinator, National Audubon Society

Bear River Refuge is an incredible area. But, there is also the area to the south of the major dike (D-line) separating the managed part of the refuge from the rest of Bear River. This area is extremely valuable as personal observation indicates and the information below helps demonstrate.

An excellent overview of the ecological setting, waterbird biology and habitat management of the Great Salt Lake and the surrounding wetlands is provided in "Avian Ecology of Great Salt Lake" by Tom Aldrich and Don Paul in Great Salt Lake: An Overview of Change. (Edited by J. Wallace Gwynn, Ph.D., Special Publication of the Utah Department of Natural Resources, 2002.) The following description of Bear River Bay is from this article:

Bear River Bay is the freshest region and receives the largest volume of riverine inflow. Its near-surface salinity is similar to that of the Bear River. This system is bounded on the north and east by state, federal, and private wetlands; on the south by industry; and to the west by the Promontory Mountains. This bay is fresh enough to support a community of submergent hydrophytes including sago pondweed (Potamogeton pectinatus) and widgeon grass (Ruppia maritima). There are significant islands of emergent wetlands here, especially in the east part of the bay in the Willlard Spur. . . . An ecological element of vital importance to pisciverus birds in this area is the fishery that persists when the lake elevation is higher than 4,200 feet (1,280.2 m) above sea level. The avian community at Willard Spur is exceptionally complex. With its species richness, diversity and overall abundance, this area continually provides one of the most magnificent displays of bird life on the lake. Although the smallest region on the lake, it makes an exceptional contribution to the lake's avian population.

The Great Salt Lake Waterbird Survey from 1997 through 2001 had 12 different survey areas in the total Bear River Bay complex, including Bear River Refuge, Public Shooting Grounds, the Bear River Club, and various survey areas in Bear River Bay. A map of these survey areas is provided. The surveys were conducted numerous times from early spring through fall during these five years.

The table below provides high bird counts over 1,000 during the GSL Water Bird Surveys from 1998 through 2001 at Bear River Refuge and the three main survey areas south of the major west to east dike (D-Line) for Bear River Refuge. Immediately below is a brief description of these areas:

1. Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. This area includes all impounded units and any appropriate habitat with established dike units within the Bear River Bird Refuge. Area is managed by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

2. South Bear River. A large wetland complex south of the D-line in the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge.

3. Bear River Bay. Open water area of the bay between the railroad causeway on the south and Bear River National Wildlife Refuge on the north. The area was surveyed from an airplane in east-west running transects spaced one mile apart. Observers counted birds on both sides of the plane out to 1/8 mile. To extrapolate to the whole area transect counts were multiplied by four. Public access.

4. Willard Spur. This area is bounded by emergent marsh or sandbar fringe on the north, the Willard Bay reservoir dike on the east, the North Harold Crane dike and emergent marsh on the south, and a line from the northwest corner of GSL Mineral north to the mud bar spit on the south.

Four Survey Sites at Bear River Bay - High Counts above 1,000 from the 1998-2001 GSL Bird Survey.
Taken from a review of 32 species.

Also Note: High counts of Tundra Swans in winter months of 12,166 at Bear River Refuge and 2,334 at Willard Spur.

The following are a few more comments on the above data.

1. Below, in alphabetical order, are abbreviations for the bird species provided above: AGWT - American green-winged Teal, AMAV - American Avocet, AMCO - American Coot, AMWI - American Widgeon, AWPE - American White Pelican, BNST - Black-necked Stilt, CAGO - Canada Goose, CAGU - California Gull, CITE - Cinnamon Teal, EARG - Eared Grebe, FRGU - Franklin Gull, LESC - Lesser Scaup, LBDO - Long-billed Dowitcher, MAGO - Marbled Godwit, NOPI - Northern Pintail, NOSH - Northern Shoveler, RBGU - Ring-billed Gull, RPHA - Red-necked Phalarope, RUDU - Ruddy Duck, WEGR - Western Grebe, WFIB - White-faced Ibis, WIPH - Wilson's Phalarope, WESA - Western Sandpiper.

2. The high bird counts above are just one way of indicating the value of these four survey areas for numerous bird species.

3. The following are estimates of 1% of the World's population of just four of the species listed above: Green Winged Teal would be 39,000, American Avocet would be 4,500, Long-billed Dowitcher would be 5,000, and Wilson's Phalarope would be 15,000. As you can see the high counts for these four species each exceeded 1% of the estimated world's population for these four species.

4. I have become familiar with the bird GSL bird surveys because they were used for selecting the five major bays of Great Salt Lake as Important Bird Areas. The Important Bird Area (IBA) program is a state, national and worldwide effort to identify, monitor and conserve critical habitat for birds. The Utah IBA program has no administrative or management authority. The five bays of Great Salt Lake have been nominated as globally important bird areas. For more about the IBA program you can go to www.audubon.org/bird/iaba/utah or contact me at wmartinson@audubon.org.This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

So, next time you are driving on I-15 towards Brigham City past Willard Bay, please keep your eyes on the road. But if you can, take the opportunity to drive to and then stop at the ramp at the southeast end of Unit Two of the Refuge. Go on up the easy walkway to the platform. Look to the north in wonder and then look to the south in awe

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.

You must have seen Ranbir Kapoor’s wonderful chemistry with Katrina Kaif in Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani.

Katrina is really exited to romance Ranbir, obviously in reel life. Katrina is really eager to be a part of Ashtvinayak’s next film that casts Ranbir.

However she is well known to this fact that her looks as well as accent can not relate

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

I searched online everywhere I could think of for a great deal and finally found it at [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I called them up first and asked every question I could think of and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and bought it. Dispatch was very fast. Everything was as it should be.

Now I would' ve used ChickHen to flash custom firmware to his psp but he updated to 5.55. So I was wondering if the Half Byte Loader program would be able to run the 5.50 D3 installer at all, since I noticed the program is beta and apparently as many problems left, long enough to flash firmware without bricking his psp.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play.

You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do.

Oftentimes, when talking about [url=http://muachunggiatot.com/thoi-trang.html]Thoi trang nam[/url], it is not a good idea to consider it in isolated terms. So it is not uncommon to find yourself doing a lot of research and decision making. You never really know what can occur should you neglect certain details, criteria and other aspects. When you are pleased that your research is thorough, then that is the time to assess the possibilities. You want to know what you are working with, so here are some areas within this subject you should use the time to consider.

The relative complexities of men's and women's fashion

Both men and women can have the difficulties of maintaining their wardrobe up-to-date and in time, yet men's fashion usually seems a lot less difficult. Of course, for both sexes, garments and style options may be quite as intricate, and there are numerous'stylish'items which can quickly become fashion faux pas - who can say they often see people running around in 70s flames? On the other side, men's style features a few staple goods that can exist forever - which man is planning to watch out of place with a good-quality, tailored suit, for example? Select basic pieces, colours and materials and you'll never seem out-of-place.

Why traditional men's style is amazing

The classic man's suit has scarcely changed for over a hundred years. True, there are many versions for various functions, nevertheless they are all popular in their search for a smart, sharp look for the individual. The great thing about classic fashion for men is that it's effectively elegant effectively cool. A well-groomed man will more often than not look his sharpest in a well-tailored suit, and this is a testament to the style of such apparel. A suit will undoubtedly be utilized to work in many professions because of the professional look it offers to the wearer, instilling a feeling of respect and trust. Similarly a match will undoubtedly be worn to several social situations, like a tuxedo to a black-tie affair. This incredible flexibility that allows matches to be used in virtually all occasions is what gives it its timeless border and a lasting place in men's fashion.

Modern developments in classic men's fashion

Though common men's styles will never be replaced, it's interesting to remember that shifts in men's fashion trends have brought certain classic clothes back to fashion. The reputation of vintage clothing, particularly, has taken back a wide-variety of common styles into men's wardrobes, such as that of the dandy man. 'Dandy'is a term used to refer to men who dress yourself in a classic yet luxurious way, placing value on appearance and acting in a polished approach. This trend for nearly'over-the-top'traditional style for men is evident from events such as the'Tweed Run', wherever men and women of all ages dress in especially Victorian-style attire and take to the streets on vintage bicycles - with lots of the men wearing impeccable mustaches! That is only one of several samples of proof presenting the resurgence of such designs. Additionally, there are numerous sites online which give attention to gentlemanly style - such as'The Dandy Project'and'Dandyism'- as well as whole sites such as'The Art of Manliness'dedicated to providing articles on traditional men's fashion and grooming.

In summary, though certain issues with classic men's style could be cut back as new styles, the basic outfits that they derive from will never slip out of fashion.
