Warbling Vireo, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 13 May 2020.
Warbling Vireo.

I like an overcast day. If not for my inability to take a decent photo in dim light, I’d prefer birding on cloudy days.

This morning was gray and calm and pleasantly cool. Spotted (or heard) a good selection of birds up the mountain—including a singing female grosbeak, a random pair of cowbirds, and a wayward collared dove.

Most exciting for me, though: after three days of trying, I somehow managed to grab a single half-way decent photo of a Warbling Vireo.

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