Medium length (for a shorebird) bill, decurved and finely pointed at the tip. Dull brownish upper parts, clean white lower parts. Faint suggestion of a supercilium, otherwise, no pattern in brown and white with wings closed. Striking white wing-stripe bordered by dark fore and aft with wing flap. Maintained a primarily horizontal posture while foraging; no tipping tail up to sky to reach objects with bill. These two birds did not stay together, but each stayed with Greater Yellowlegs.

Cameron Cox (17 Oct 2018) – [Antelope Island SP – Causeway] – McCOWAN’s LONGSPUR. Got out of the car and immediately heard a distinct longspur rattle from overheard that I recognized as a non-Lapland rattle. I looked up and saw a gray, long-winged bird with a distinctly white tail with a narrow dark terminal band just as it called again. After this very brief look I lost it in the sun as I pivoted and tried to follow it. I heard it once more but it seemed to have flown higher and was right in the middle of the sun glare. The rattle was distinctive softer, slightly shorter in length and slightly more musical than LALO. Not at all likt the odd flight call of CCLO or the extremely dry rattle of SMLO. Tail pattern seen briefly but diagnostic.

Cameron Cox (01 Oct 2018) – [Bountiful Pond] – RUFF. Wing length and total length similar appeared similar to the LEYE but noticeably more heavily built than the yellowlegs so it appeared larger. Most sandpipers have parallel-sided inner wings, the leading edge of the and the trailing edge are almost perfectly parallel and there is no expansion where the wings meet the body. On this bird the wings obviously expanded so the base of the wings was clearly broader than the majority of the inner wing. The inner wing also tapered slightly along its length to the wrist joint. The outer wing was swept back but not as strongly as most sandpipers and while the outer wing also tapered but not as much as many sandpipers while the wing tip was a bit blunter than other sandpipers. This wing shape is really unique and a big part of the identification. The bright white secondary coverts is something I've noticed a number of times on Ruffs and the combination of clean, bright white underwings and projecting feet is unique. The overall tan and white appearance is typical of late fall juvs, the color of the chest and the extend of the coloration and how it faded into white on the lower half of the body is typical of late fall juv Ruffs.

Cameron Cox (29 Jul 2018) - [Antelope Island SP -- Garr Ranch] - Purple Martin. Female PUMA. Flew right overhead as I was about to get in my car. Large broad winged swallow. I ID it naked eye then got my binoculars and got excellent looks at it few several seconds with my mouth open in surprise, then grabbed the camera and took a few shots when it was already well past me. As I first got bins on it I could see a darker gray throat extending very slightly onto the upper breast, a paler gray belly, and slightly darker undertail coverts and uniformly dark underwings. It appeared to be an adult female, a juvenile would have had a paler belly and shown faint streaking.
       -- Also seen: Indigo Bunting. Previously reported. The flight call was obviously longer than that of the LAZB. No signs of hybridization. Camera was being obnoxious so I had to use manual focus and the bird was far so doc shots only. Appears to have funky molt going on like typical of Passerinas.

Kristin Purdy (21 Jun 2018) - [Farmington Canyon] - Broad-winged Hawk. Weird, huh? Bird soaring over rocky cliffs NE of the ATV trailer parking lot along Farmington Canyon Road at about these coords: 41°00'09.68" 111°52'45.9", being dive-bombed by an American Kestrel. Clearly a light morph buteo, but compact. Brown head becoming whiter through the breast and belly with no clear line of demarcation until completely white at lower belly and around feet. No belly band. Wings broad from leading to trailing edge; wing coverts and remiges white underneath with black wing tips and black border to trailing edge. No black patagium. Tail bold with three thick bands visible: black-white-black. Sun shone through the white band like a beacon. Then, joined by a soaring Peregrine Falcon; BWHA's wings clearly more broad leading-to-trailing edge and more rounded than the long tapered shape of the PEFA's; wingspan clearly shorter than PEFA's also. Easily watched this bird for 5 minutes or more with binos. Then, I self-resuscitated.

Colin Maguire (22Apr 2018) - [Centerville, UT] - Northern Goshawk. When I first spotted this large hawk it was perched on a branch of a dead tree, a common hang out for Cooper's and Sharp-shinned hawks. Immediately I suspected it was not likely a Cooper's hawk because it was larger and thicker. I ran inside my house and grabbed my binoculars. When I returned the hawk was facing me, I studied it for about 10 seconds. I noticed the breast was completely whitish gray. The cap was dark gray with a white stripe over the eye. The tail was long, but I didn't notice much strong banding.

Hobart Collins (9 Apr 2018) - [Farmington Bay WMA] - Tundra Swan. Clearly swan species as judged by size and long necks. Could not specify Tundra as heads were tucked, but that is most likely in this location.

Cameron Cox (7 Apr 2018) - [Farmington Bay WMA] - Neotropic Cormorant. Two obvious dinky cormorants with short, weak bills sitting on the bank in the midst of a group of DCCO. Too far to see facial details but the comparison made the ID easy.
     -- Iceland Gull (Thayer's). This 1st cycle individual still had the beautiful uniformly creamy brown appearance of juv THGU. Some in spring begin to look patchy but this one was pristine. Dark browns, not blackish primaries still with some pale edges.
     -- Lesser Black-backed Gull. Adult in full alt. Of a size with the nearby CAGUs but heftier with a stouter bill, likely a big male. Mantle several shades darker than nearby CAGU giving the appearance of a dark mantle gull not a gray mantled gull. Saw it change positions several times and dark appearance was maintained, not a trick of the light. Tertial crescent small, not SBGU or WEGU.
     -- Merlin (Taiga). Chasing YHBL. Remarkably dark almost like a Black MERL but also appeared very small.

Shawn Crothers (5 Apr 2018) - [Hill AFB Airfield] - Gray Partridge. One, possibly two birds audible. Distinctive Kee-uk calls heard several times. No visual confirmation but GRPA have been seen and heard in this same area several times over the past weeks.
