Clear Lake Waterfowl Management Area, Utah
Utah

"6,150 acre waterfowl and pheasant management area. This wetland in the middle of the Great Basin Desert is a vital habitat for migrating birds who stop to rest and replenish energy stores before moving on. Many of those species remain to nest and rear their young. Generally, mid-April and late September coincide with the peak of the annual spring and fall migrations. Waterfowl species include swans, Canada geese, mallards, green-winged and cinnamon teal, pintails, wigeons, gadwalls, redheads, canvasbacks, buffleheads, goldeneyes, ruddy ducks, and mergansers. A variety of shore and wading birds stop here, including great blue herons, snowy egrets, black-crowned night herons, white-faced ibis, avocets, black-necked stilts, and eared grebes. Waterfowl and marsh birds can be observed best during the late fall and early spring."
