Plumbeous Vireo (lifer), East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 04 September 2019.
Plumbeous Vireo (a lifer for me).

At some point on the trail in the shadow of the mountain early this morning, I said to my GoPro, “Been a while since I’ve seen a lifer.” Or something like that.

Not long afterward, I was contemplating a vireo, knowing it was a new bird. Turned out to be a Plumbeous Vireo. Cool.

Later, in town, a big ol’ flock of Canada Geese flew over. Early sign of fall.
