Year Ending

Wednesday, December 29th, 2021
Chickadee found a morsel, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 29 December 2021.
Chickadee found a morsel.

A morning much like yesterday’s, but with a very slight breeze, a slightly chillier temperature, a little more snow, and a bit of hazy sunlight. A different selection of birds, three cottontails, nine deer, a few humans (whose conversation was intelligible to me, but who did not notice us at all).

Saw a flicker. Heard a bunch of chickadees. Came upon what looked like Mountain Lion tracks. Grabbed a photo or two.

A couple days left in the year. A few hours until my birthday.

Bird Report is a (sometimes intermittent) record of the birds I encounter while hiking, see while driving, or spy outside my window. —Brian Willson
