Nippy

Monday, April 11th, 2022
Rock Wren, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 11 April 2022.
Rock Wren.

Saw hawks and a wren this unseasonably nippy, overcast, windy morning. The wren was hopping about in the rocks around the old abandoned Monarch Quarry, the hawks were sailing in the wind. A red-tail, in fact, looked to be hunting for rabbits at the quarry. (Saw a cottontail, early, but before the hawk showed up.)

At home, the robins are still constructing a nest—possibly in the ivy around the chimney.

Gonna snow tonight.
