Sparrow

Sunday, January 30th, 2022
Song Sparrow, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 30 January 2022.
Backyard Song Sparrow.

A morning much like the last three, or four, or five. Bright sun, nippy temperatures, icy trails, bad air in the basin—and enough wildlife to draw dog’s and my attention.

A few robins have been hanging out. Chickadees and finches have been singing. Winter’s closing in on half over.

No birds would pose for my camera today, though, but I found an obliging sparrow at home.

I do love Song Sparrows. I’d like to thank them from being close by.

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