Same Bird

Monday, January 17th, 2022
Woodhouse’s Scrub-jay, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 17 January 2021.
Woodhouse’s Scrub-jay.

The highlight of this morning’s hike with dog—which unfolded very much like the past three or four or five mornings’—happened as we were hiking up the little wooded gully trail, when I heard the voice of a raven in flight. I never caught sight of the bird through the webs and tangles of branches above us, but I did hear it call again a bit later. Also in flight, but returning.

I feel sure it was the same bird.
