Warbler

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).

Dogless Still

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.

Midday Birds

Common Raven, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 31 October 2019.
Common Raven.

No Jack on my midday Halloween hike, which seemed wrong and strange. I made it a quick one. At first there seemed few birds up the mountainside—but a bunch showed up on my return trip, including Golden Eagle, Canyon Wren, and a pair of vocal ravens.

I sure missed that dog of mine—who had to stay home in a cone—but I can think of worse companionship.
