Pleasant Hike

Monday, June 7th, 2021
California Quail, East Millceek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 06/07/2021.
California Quail.

A pleasant, rather quiet hike up the deer trails with dog this early morning. The usual suspects—some conspicuously singing, some flitting silently.

Seems the birds were actually a little more active in the neighborhood this day—hummingbirds in the flowers, magpies in the fringes, robins pulling up worms. Also a single male California Quail lurking in the fringes.

Warm in afternoon, but it was a pleasant heat. No longer summerlike in spring.
