There's something to see in every season.

Bob Walters is the DWR's Watchable Wildlife program coordinator. He is an avid birder who loves Utah's amazing wildlife, particularly Salt Lake City's resident peregrine falcons.

Whether it’s winter, summer or somewhere in between, there’s always something exciting to see in Utah. We hold a variety of Watchable Wildlife program events across the state throughout the year. For specific activity dates, visit the Wildlife Calendar.

  1. […] Unfortunately, humans aren’t as mobile as the animals we enjoy watching. It’s easy to get frustrated when creatures are there one moment and gone the next. That’s why you should plan to attend one of Utah’s many upcoming Watchable Wildlife program events. […]

  2. Hey Bob,
    This is a really great top ten list, the videos were the best part, thanks for posting them. I think that the Great Salt Lake Bird Festival should be #2, it is a fabulous time. You can post this to our site and then link back to your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.

  3. I like the whole blog idea, wondering if we could start a wildlife sighting thread?
