A day much like yesterday, sunny and calm and pleasant. Fairly quiet on the mountainside, but a few interesting species in the neighborhood—including what I’m pretty sure was my first sighting of a western yellow-rump (Audubon’s Warbler) out my office window. Just the third warbler I’ve seen here, in fact—which seems weird.

Managed to survive another hike without Jack my dog (and didn’t get eaten by lions).

Mild Day

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

Tuesday, 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.
