|Audubon's Yellow-rumped Warbler|
The yellow throat helps distinguish it from the Myrtle's Yellow-rumped Warblers which I have also seen a couple of times here in Utah. But it looks like I'm not going to get an arm-chair life bird related to this species...yet!
|Red-winged Blackbird defending his territory. |
I've been watching him sing from the same location for a couple of weeks. I recently saw two females nest-building in his territory, so he must be a good singer.

|American Robin - shaking off the rain|
|There was a moment when the clouds broke and we enjoyed some sunshine. This male Bullock's Oriole took advantage of the sunshine to get out and sing for the ladies.|
|Thanks to Salt Lake birder Deedee O'Brien for allowing me to visit her home during my lunch hour to see the Band-tailed Pigeon's in her beautiful backyard. This was a life bird for me!|
