White Christmas

Black-billed Magpie, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 25 December 2019.
Black-billed Magpie.

Snow came overnight, as forecast. Had a couple inches at the house by the time it eased up—at which point Jack and I took off for the trailhead. About five inches of heavy wet snowfall up there.

Also fog—pretty thick fog. Heard quite a few birds but didn’t spot a one. However, a magpie posed like an ornament back in the neighborhood.
