Eagle Flyby

Saturday, November 23rd, 2019
Golden Eagle (immature), East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 23 November 2019.
Golden Eagle (immature).

Got up the mountain early this morning. Temps in the 30s, clear skies, bright sun rising. More birds than any recent day—including a random flyby by a solitary juvie Golden Eagle.

The most interesting thing, though: the distant call of a crow. A sound that was so common back east, but the first time I’ve heard it here in Utah.

Note: I’ve seen crows here a couple times, but they were silent.
