Is This Trip For Me?
Whether you have never been birding or are an avid bird watcher already, we can cater this hike to your liking! The standard hike is made to be an introductory to birding where our guide, Nate Brown, will teach you the skills you need to set you up for future success. However, if you have an interest in birding and want a more customized experience, or perhaps are looking to seek out specific birds, we can certainly customize a tour to your desires!

What You’ll See
Park City is home to a myriad of local bird species as well as being located along many birds’ of prey migratory paths. Some unique birds that you could see are Gray Jay, Western Tanager, Pine Grosbeak, Stellar Jay, Ruffed and Dusky Grouse, American Three-toed Woodpecker, Mountain Chickadee, Olive-sided Flycatcher, Red Crossbill, Northern Goshawk, Swainson’s and Red-tailed Hawks and even the seasonal Flammulated Owl.
We will be offering birding tours daily, either early in the morning or in the evenings when birds are most active. Pickup will either be 30 minutes before sunrise or around 5pm, depending on when sunset is throughout the year. There is a local birding option, which entails two hours on a trail here in Park City, or for those looking for some solitude, we also offer Uinta birding tours in the National Forrest for a four hour excursion. Either option has a two person minimum, and includes the guide, transportation, head lamps if needed, binoculars, field book, and everything else included in a hike.
If you’re looking to pursue a new hobby or continue your knowledge in an existing one, our Park City bird watching tours can be the perfect answer, as well as a way to add a special element to your hike.
