OGDEN — Rosalie Winard was a lifelong Easterner when she left New York City for someplace richer in avian life.
Winard, a photographer who aims her lens at waterfowl, moved to Utah in January 2011. On Thursday, she talked to Weber State students about her passion for shooting photos and for the artistic opportunity provided by the Great Salt Lake.
“There are more birds than people in Utah,” Winard said. “I told someone that 5 million birds live or pass through Utah each year, and she thought I must have meant 5,000. And that 5 million probably includes over 250 species. It’s incredible.”
