Spring

Wednesday, March 30th, 2022
Northern Flicker, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 30 March 2022.
Northern Flicker.

This morning was a little nippy, but the skies quickly cleared, and my hike with dog proved enjoyable and inspiring. Had a low-flowing red-tail early, robins and towhees and jays, just three deer, but a good-sized gaggle of chickadees.

Slippery trails on account of yesterday’s rain (and more coming tomorrow), but by afternoon the day had warmed considerably.

No new migrants—but today for the first time, I had no doubt it’s spring.
