First Wednesday - more birds to id

First Wednesday - more birds to id

One of the more common birds here is the Dark-eyed Junco. Beside the dark eyes, they have distinctive rust colored spot on their back; they are very small. You may have seen them in earlier photos.

The next for today is the House Finch. I think I mentioned it earlier, but this is a nice photo.

The other new one for today, three angles, is the Black-headed Grosbeak (male):

On Wednesday afternoon, after some more snow and sleet, it cleared off a bit, so that Larry and Annette could join the 4-H group they work with to 'pick up highway trash' on a 2 mile stretch of Highway 24 west of Loa. Here is a photo of Larry hard at work with the Jeep.

It was another good day in Utah!  ;-)
