Sunflower Birds

Lesser Goldfinch (male), East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 30 November 2019.

Welp, my-dog-Jack poked himself in the eye somehow and wound up with a corneal ulcer that wasn’t healing on its own. Thus, there’ll be the dreaded cone and no hiking for a week or two—poor dude.*

Still, on this nippy morning (10 degrees (F)), I did manage to see a few neighborhood birds, among them a handful of goldfinches dining on sunflower seeds.

*I’ll likely sneak away for a hike or two on my own, though.

Bird Report is a (sometimes intermittent) record of the birds I encounter while hiking, see while driving, or spy outside my window. —Brian Willson
