Birds

Great Salt Lake is recognized regionally, nationally, and around the world for its extensive wetlands and its tremendous and often unparalleled values to migratory birds. These values are derived from the lake's unique physical features, including its immense size, dynamic water levels, diversity of aquatic environments, extensive wetlands, and geographic position in avian migration corridors. These features create a mosaic of habitat types that are attractive to literally millions of migratory birds that use the lake extensively for breeding, staging, and in some cases, a wintering destination.
