Corvids and Such

November 7th, 2019
Woodhouse’s Scrub-jay, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 07 November 2019.
Woodhouse’s Scrub-jay.

Another hike without dog. Just three more to go. A nice one, though—with a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers in addition to a downy. Otherwise, the usual corvids and such.

Sunny, nice temps, cool breeze, half moon. (Only got a little nervous about the trio of lions spotted about a mile away a couple mornings ago.)

Mild Day

November 6th, 2019
Woodhouse’s Scrub-jay, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 06 November 2019.
Woodhouse’s Scrub-jay.

Jack’s eye (and mood) seems a lot better, but I still can’t get used to hiking without having my dog along. Still, I hiked—and listed eight birds on the mountainside. Got no great photos, though.

It was a mild November day.

Dogless Still

November 5th, 2019
Canyon Wren, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 05 November 2019.
Canyon Wren.

Another dogless hike, which is getting old. But at least I engaged in a little chase around the gulch with a (the) Canyon Wren again. Plus, plenty of other species. (Nothing outlandish.)

Sunny, warm in the sun, chilly in evening.

Five days until Jack can accompany me again.
