Sparrows

Thursday, September 16th, 2021
White-crowned Sparrow (imm.), East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 16 September 2021.
White-crowned Sparrow (imm.).

My morning hike with dog was supposed to be a short one (since grocery shopping after was in the cards), but I got waylaid by some interesting birds. And not a few this day.

Hawk in the big olive tree. Pigeon and chickadee and gnatcatcher and warbler and yet another (unidentified) hummer—and sparrows.

(The sparrows brought the thrills this day, especially a young white-crowned.)
