Quietude, Part 2

Thursday, July 30th, 2020
Woodhouse’s Scrub-jay, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 30 July 2020.
Woodhouse’s Scrub-jay.

Even quieter this morning. Warmer, breezier, and quieter. Took longer to count more than a handful of species—and the numbers didn’t come until the sun topped the ridge.

Fewer individual birds than yesterday, but lots of juvies still. Saw a warbler I couldn’t ID before it flew. [I think it might’ve been an orange-crowned.] Lots of buntings and towhees still—but few singing.

Nothing rare or thrilling maybe, but Captain Jack and I loved it anyway. Plus, I got a portrait of a scrub-jay.
