A Little Frosty

Got up the hill early this morning, before the sun topped all the ridges. A little frosty, but bright. Quite a few birds flitting around, but none were overly excited to be photographed.

The sunny days here stack up like books on a shelf.

Back home in afternoon, I caught sight of another yellow-rump out my office window. Love those little guys.

’Rump

Yellow-rumped Warbler, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 15 November 2019.

Saw my first Yellow-rumped Warbler on the trail today. It seemed like a milestone of sorts.

I’ve seen them—out here they’re the Audubon’s subspecies, with a yellow throat as well as rump—flitting through the back yard trees in afternoon, but this was the first bird up the mountainside trail I hike with dog every day. Believe it or not, it was quite a thrill.

Had another eight species this morning also. Good day.

Quail, etc.

California Quail, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 12 November 2019.

Jack my dog got a clean bill of eye health this morning. Excellent healing of his corneal ulcer. So relieved. Plus, we got to hike together this midday.

Not many bird species on the mountainside—although they did include a Canyon Wren sighting—but the little gang of quail showed up in the neighborhood, and a male perched on a bush and posed for photos.

Also, yet again, a little group of Yellow-rumped Warblers (Audubon’s) flitted through the trees outside my office window.
