Solitary Chippy

Chipping Sparrow, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 25 September 2021.

A quiet hike this morning for dog and me. Oddly—for it being a cool lovely Saturday—we met no other humans or dogs until we’d nearly returned to the trailhead. In fact, the whole hike was pretty quiet, all in all. Except for assorted finches. And yellow-rumps. And a solitary Chipping Sparrow.

(Actually, the chippy was quiet also. But at least it posed for a photo.)

Swainson’s Thrush, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 19 September 2014.

Swainson’s Thrush.

On my Beech Hill hike with dog today—a lovely, sunny, breezy, chilly day—I saw a bunch of nervous birds, including two uncommon visitors to the hill: a Swainson’s Thrush and a Warbling Vireo, both south-bound, I feel sure.

I only got a photo of the thrush, though.
