Variety

Black-headed Grobeak, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 30 May 2021.
Black-headed Grobeak.

Breezy, cool, mostly overcast to start, clearing later—and what a hike it would be. Tallied twenty-four varied species (including a random Mallard flyby).

Other birds of interest were a couple of flycatchers, a Brewer’s Sparrow, a little flock of swallows, a tanager. Several species stopped to let me take their photo.

Already looking forward to morning.
