Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 04 July 2020.
Blue-gray Gnatcatcher.

Did the ridge circuit with dog this morning, a three-and-a-half mile hike up Coyote Canyon (so-called) to a summit above the terminus of the Pipeline Trail. Warm, sunny, breezy, dry.

Not nearly as many individual birds as yesterday, nor as many species. But all around it was a lovely Independence Day hike for both Captain Jack and me.

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