The North Lehi Fields are a section of the only remaining agricultural land in north Lehi. From the Jordan River west to Redwood Road, and from Thanksgiving Point south to Lehi Main Street are the orders of the fields. The Allred Hog Farms as well as Mink Farms sit in the central part of the fields, while Allred's Pond sits near the southern edge. The best birding is from the far north end of 3600 West all the way to Lehi Main where the road become 10420 West. This is the only major north-south route through the fields.
Birding can happen here year round, but the best birding is from late March through May when migrants are on their way north. Gulls, WHITE-FACED IBIS, some shorebirds, and waterfowl use the fields to rest and feed. Large flocks of FRANKLIN'S GULLS can be seen roosting and flying through, occasionally with BONAPARTE'S GULLS mixed in. FORESTER'S TERNS also have been seen flying over. Halfway south along 3600 West, the road elbows and there is often water in the ditches and fields here. This spot is worth checking for SOLITARY SANDPIPER. When the large flocks of ibis (sometimes 1,000's) are in the fields its worth checking for GLOSSY IBIS, which have been seen several times. Raptors frequent the area and in the winter months several HARLAN'S HAWKS have been seen here. Both Peregrine and Prairie Falcons may show up, while in the winter Rough-legged Hawks are present--and in the summer they are replaced by Swainson's. Sometimes huge flocks of Brewer's Blackbirds can be found in teh vicinity of the farms, and during the fall, winter, and spring these flocks may contain goodies like 2 RUSTY BLACKBIRDS, Yellow-headed Blackbird, and Brown-headed Cowbirds. On the north end of the fields is an old orchard and stand of trees where a GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW was seen in September 2012.
From I-15 in Lehi take exit 282 westbound. Follow the road for 1 mile to the Jordan River. Once you cross the river you are in the fields. The main birding route is north and south along 3600 West through the center of the fields.
