Warmer

Black-capped Chickadee, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 03 April 2021.
Black-capped Chickadee.

Warmer still, and mostly cloudless. Three cottontails in the quarry this morning, several deer up the juniper slope. Three tits (Black-capped Chickadee, Mountain Chickadee, Juniper Titmouse), a bunch of robins still, and a junco for a change.

But the most exciting bird was a lonely White-breasted Nuthatch. Don’t see many of those around here.

Feels like things are about to bust out. We shall see.

Juvie Bluebirds

Juvie bluebirds.

A cool, cloudless morning. Dog and I arrived at the hill in time to hear the sounds of early bird species awakening—and, later, the music of later sleepers. A couple of oddballs (including a Song Sparrow that began its tune with two clear, ringing notes of differing pitches.

My favorite of the day, though, were the juvie bluebirds.

Chipping Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 22 July 2019.
Chipping Sparrow.

A cool and breezy morning. Ahhh. Still mosquitos, ticks, and flies about, but oh, well. Totally worth it.

The usual suspects, along with a couple less common birds. One of the grosbeak families has fledged its young, so that’s happening. No other humans on the hill this lush Sunday morning.

Occurred to me (again) that there are at least twice as many birds around here as there were a mere three months ago. Sure, most of ’em will be gone by winter—but still.
