Before the Rain

Song Sparrow, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 28 September 2019.
Neighborhood Song Sparrow.

Thundershowers forecast, but early on the ominous skies were zipping in from the southwest but keeping up high along the peaks, barely missing us. So Jack and I took a hike. It was a good one.

No great photos, but a evidence of migration still—sparrows and a vireo with the chickadees, other birds in the periphery. And plenty of activity in the neighborhood.

Thundershowers did finally arrive.

A period of overcast and rain this week. Dog and I hiked the soggy hill, encountered the usual suspects, then—on returning—added Common Raven and Horned Lark.

That made it an even dozen.
