Towhees Galore

Tuesday, March 29th, 2022
Spotted Towhee, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 29 March 2022.
Spotted Towhee.

A mostly overcast morning of a day that’s forecast to include a thundershower or two. Breezy, but not chilly—rather cool. In more than one way, cool.

Many birds (flocks of robins, a dozen towhees) and good photo ops. A few deer, another kinglet.

And in afternoon, refreshing thundershowers.

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