Hopeful

A little chillier this morning than yesterday, and I headed up the mountain a bit later. Pretty quiet, but had nine species on my list—including the vocal Canyon Wren. Blue-blue sky, light breeze, lovely day.

Tomorrow I’m hopeful that Jack can accompany me again finally.

Westerners

Northern Flicker (red-shafted race), East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 09 November 2019.
Northern Flicker (red-shafted race).

One fun thing about moving west of the Continental Divide is finding familiar species that look different. An example is the yellow-rump I saw yesterday (which had a yellow throat, being an Audubon’s variety). Another are the red-shafted Northern Flickers we’ve got out here—quite distinct from the familiar yellow-shafted race from back east.

Today I got a good look at a few individuals of the latter. Lovely weather, nice hike. Just two days until my dog can join me again.

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).
