Solitary Chippy

Saturday, September 25th, 2021
Chipping Sparrow, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 25 September 2021.

A quiet hike this morning for dog and me. Oddly—for it being a cool lovely Saturday—we met no other humans or dogs until we’d nearly returned to the trailhead. In fact, the whole hike was pretty quiet, all in all. Except for assorted finches. And yellow-rumps. And a solitary Chipping Sparrow.

(Actually, the chippy was quiet also. But at least it posed for a photo.)
