While some birds head further north to breed, over 60 species stay at Bear
River through the summer to breed and raise their young. Baby birds can be seen
as early as May when the Canada goose goslings make their debut. Later in June
and July, visitors can view ducklings and young shorebirds such as American
avocets and black-necked stilts. In July, the sight of young western grebes
riding atop their parents' backs is especially exciting.
