Utah has one of about 50 federally protected migratory bird refuges in the country. Jan. 12 they held Owl Day to educate the public on wildlife.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge is quite the diamond in the rough of the desert. An oasis of sorts, even in the winter time. Check out this video I shot of a family learning about owls. A 4-year-old also finds out to find the bones he has been dissecting an owl pellet. The look on his face when he makes that realization is priceless. It wasn't just brown dirt.

Here is the print story I did of all the facts about which owl can live up to 20 years and why the bird refuge hosts the events for free to the public.
A great place to take the children when experiencing cabin fever in wintertime or during summer break.
