Responded to pishing, popped out of thick brush along a boggy rivulet twice, very briefly, not long enough for positive ID. Distinctly Melospiza, lacking cuteness and crisp breast streaks of Lincoln's, and lacking stickpin and coarse streaks of Song. Same scenario today with longer observation. Gray bill, rusty-brown cap, gray-brown supercilium. Strong face pattern with auriculars defined by dark eye line and moustachial stripe. Sub-moustachial stripe somewhat buffy, but not as buffy as Lincoln's. Whitish throat. Grayish upper breast with blurry, indistinct streaks. Weak buffiness on sides. Rusty brown wings and tail, wings lacking wing bars.
   
 -- Western Screech-Owl. Chickadee called me to mature clump of trees with insistent dee-dee-dee notes. Juncos also mobbing. Small owl perched close to trunk and partially obscured by leaves. Drawn up long into camouflage posture. Generally gray and cryptic, strong, black coarse streaks. Small grayish bill with whitish tip. White, irregular streak down scapular.

Weston Smith (3 November 2016) - [East Canyon Reservoir] - Pacific Loon. Continuing bird though today it seems to have swallowed something with fishing line and is tangled in it. The bird seems to have item in area where throat starts causing bill to remain open slightly, line goes around one wing and tight enough to keep head back towards wing. Bird seems to be moving across water ok but not sure if it can dive. It was vigorously rolling in the water in an attempt to free itself. Last I saw it was about the center of the reservoir. I contacted everyone I could think to maybe get it some help today if not I have a contact that can possibly help tomorrow.

Diana Mix (9 November 2016) - [East Salt Lake city] - Barn Owl. I watched the crow which had attracted my attention in the first place for a while, and realized it was scolding some other bird, but was also keeping a safe distance from it, and keeping an eye on it. I found an angle that allowed me to see the "feathered object", and realized it was NOT a hawk. The crow flew off. I got binoculars. The heart-shaped face pattern was very noticeable, and distinctive. I confirmed it with my bird books. I had never seen a Barn Owl before! The owl returned to the same tree, but a slightly different branch on the next day, which is the reason for different dates on the photos. While I was looking at the owl, the owl was definitely looking at me!

George Webb (7 November 20160 - [Utah Lake] - Semipalmated Plover. Relatively small shorebird, dark brown upperside, dark cheek and orange legs. Single complete breast-band. Stout orange bill. Smaller than Killdeer and less active. Definitely a plover. Watched them for a couple of minutes in good light from about 50-60 yards away with 8.5x binoculars. Surprised to see them this late in the year, but there was good foraging habitat because the lake is so low, and the warm temperatures have probably been a factor in having them stay around this long.

On the return hike found a tree with Bohemians in it, but I'm not sure if this was the same group or not as it wasn't in the same area I saw the others. I'm only reporting the number that I counted in the tree.
