Song Sparrow, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 31 December 2019.
Song Sparrow.

How perfectly fitting to have chased and found, on the last day of the year, a Song Sparrow, plain but comely member of one of our most familiar, most endearing, most optimistic-seeming birds.

Now we ease into the unknown that is Year 2020.

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