Hopeful

American Robin, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 11 November 2019.
American Robin.

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.

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.

Corvids and Such

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.)
