Quail Creek State Park

Location: west of Hurricane, Utah
Dates: March 12 and April 19, 2011

Quail Creek State Park near Hurricane in southwest Utah is a park centered around a reservoir.  The primary activities in the park are boating and fishing, although there is also a small campground.

The primary purpose of my visit was to see if there any interesting birds around.  The park is at the northern extent of the Mojave desert near St. George and the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve and about 30 miles from Zion National Park.  The only different bird that I saw on my visits was a verdin, which reaches its northern extent here.

The birds I saw include:
    Osprey
    Yellow-rumped warbler
    Verdin
    American coot
    Spotted sandpiper
    Rock wren
    House finch
