Jordan River Birdwalk

  • 645 W 4800 South Taylorsville, UT, 84123 United States (map)

The Jordan River is a wonderful place for birds in the Salt Lake Valley. One of the greatest spots to see birds along the Jordan River is along the Jordan River Parkway Trail between 4500 S and 5400 S. According to eBird, it has the greatest diversity of birds of any place along the Jordan River in Salt Lake County. This is due to the wide array of different habitats including open river, dry shrubland, reedy river banks, shallow marshland, riparian woodland, and an enlarged sandy bank (home to nesting Belted Kingfishers and Bank Swallows).

We will meet at 7:30 am at the Little Confluence Park parking lot on 4800 S.

Bring your binoculars or camera and come prepared for the weather with water, sunscreen and jacket.

The lot is near some picnic tables across the street from Sunstone Rd. after you pass the Jordan River heading west.
