Winter Robin

Monday, January 3rd, 2022
American Robin, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 03 January 2022.
American Robin.

A warmer morning—low-20s (F)—no breeze to speak of, brilliant skies. A few more bird species than in recent days, including a bunch of juncos and a random, solitary robin. The robin, a fleeting sighting, stands as the most memorable.

Still, the deer were nice, too (including a handsome buck), and one brave cottontail in the little old Monarch Quarry.

Precipitation coming the next few days. Or so they say.
