Utah Wildlife

Fall used to be my favorite season.  In New England where I grew up fall meant beautiful foliage, cool nights, apple picking and pumpkin pies from farms.  I’m trying to maintain the same excitement in Utah but fall now means the end of interesting birds.

Yellow-rumped Warbler

Yellow-rumped Warblers are beautiful birds. They’re often overlooked because during certain times of the year they’re everywhere.  During our Arizona trip, we started saying “Oh, I see something!  Wait, it’s just a Yellow-rumped Warbler.” The Yellow-rumped Warbler is a combination of two species that used to be considered separate species.  The way to tell the […]
