Oriole Update

Posted: 26 May 2011 03:41 AM PDT

Baltimore Oriole 


The Baltimore Orioles have returned and are occasionally feeding at the oranges or jelly. This one is at one of Chris' orange halves with some of the orange scooped out and replaced with grape jelly. She tries hard to accomodate different tastes.

We are still hoping for an Oriole nest.

Lake Neslon Update

Posted: 26 May 2011 03:36 AM PDT

Goose Egg 




The dam on Lake Nelson was fixed and with all the rain, the lake is full.
A big thanks for all who volunteered and helped with the repairs.

Before the dam was fixed, a goose used our floating island as a nest. We think it abandoned the nest, it only sat on it a few days. Now that the lake is back, we've had one cormorant on the lake and a few ducks have returned. We did get to take the boat out and ran into a nice deer at a stream that feeds the lake.

Photographic Expression with Gerry Johnson

Saturday, June 25, 2011

HawkWatch International Office: 2240 S 900 E, Salt Lake City       
9:30 am - noon

Pre-registration Required: hawkwatch.org

Cost/Class:  $10 for members of HWI or Great Salt Lake Audubon; $15 for non-membersfarmington bay-G. Johnson


Gerry has been taking pictures most of his life, but in the past four years has focused on wildlife and nature photography. Formally educated as an engineer, his photographic education has been mostly self-taught, along with a lot of help from friends!  Being raised in the more remote areas of northern Minnesota helped instill a love of nature and keen observation of wildlife.  His work for the past 3 years has moved from documentation to expression--primarily to assist others to experience the moments of beauty that surround each of us.


In addition to work with Hawkwatch International and The Nature Conservancy, Gerry's work was recognized in 2009 as one of the top 100 NANPA photographers.
