Steve Clark (20 Sep 2018) - [Woodland Hills, UT] - Rose-breasted Grosbeak. I have been watching a Black-headed Grosbeak still hanging around in the yard the last few days. This Grosbeak arrived at the pond and I thought it was this same one when I saw it fly in. Until I got binoculars on it and noticed it was quite different looking. The first thing I noticed was the bird had an extremely white eyebrow, instead of the buffy/yellowish eyebrow of the BHGR. It was extensively streaked along the breast and flanks. Red/orange breast that turned more pale yellow as it moved down to the belly. I could not distinguish whether the bill was bicolored or just straight pale. It got a drink first and then a half a minute later took a quick bath in the pond. I chose to watch and study it rather than run for my camera. I ran and got it after, but had missed my chance for a photo. Immature male.

I only got a couple of short glimpses of the bird and was unable to get a photo (it was on the other side of the river). I recorded the bird singing with my phone. GPS coordinates 40.44960 -111.64782. Along the river just a little ways downstream from Mutual Dell.

Steve Clark (9 Jul 2018) - [Bridal Veil Falls Overlook] - Black Swift (4). Probably more. Never could confirm more than one at a time. Larger, all black Swift. No white on the bird, unlike the Violet-green Swallows and White-throated Swifts it was flying near. It was a great evening for the lighting. The lack of white was quite obvious when it would fly down below the ridge and along the rock face. Only then was I certain of the ID. Flight was quite obviously different as well.

Steve Clark (28 Jun 2018) - [Warm Springs WMA] - American Bittern. Seen in flight at 9:14. Flew directly in front of me from the east heading west/southwest toward the small pond and then over the Russian Olives beyond. Didn't even need binoculars for the first few seconds. As it flew it made the deep, hoarse "Kok", which is what actually alerted me to its presence in the first place. I had seen a juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron fly by in almost the exact same direction about 15 minutes prior and land next to the pond. I had been watching it just before the Bittern flyby. It made for a good comparison. The Night-Heron's "Kwok" was higher pitched when it flew. The Bittern looked larger and overall longer. It was dark and long-striped on the underside. Quite a long bill. It felt less "chunky" than the Night-Heron, possibly because of the longer neck. Long-ish legs trailing behind. I could not tell if it looked "hunchbacked". Notes written down immediately after the sighting. An individual was seen here in June last year as well. Hopefully this one sticks around a while too.

Taylor Rogers (5 May 2018) - [Provo Airport Dike] - Merlin. This bird did not have the orange and blue colors of an American Kestrel. It was slightly larger than the kestrels I’ve seen. It did not have the brown mustache stripe of a Prairie Falcon and it was high in a tree. It had the thin white eyebrow of a Merlin. I’ve seen other Merlin’s and this bird looked similar. I looked at some of the pictures other people have uploaded of the Merlins they’ve seen in the same location and the bird I saw looked the same.

Brenda Brannen (21 Feb 2018) - [ Orem City, UT] - Pinyon Jay. My first reaction to this jay was the almost uniform grayish blue color and "stub" tail. There were no contrasting wing bars, eyebrows, undertail coverts, etc. It was definitely not my Georgia (bright) blue jay nor the Steller's jay--no crest on this jay, just a rounded head with dark eye. None of the scrub jays, including Woodhouse's, would fit either because of color differentiations and longer tails. I am confident that the 2 jays I saw at this location were, indeed, PIJA's. There was no snow in this area when I arrived 2-18-18, but it snowed all night that night so that on the 19th snow covered everything, including bird feeders. On the day I saw the PIJA's, the snow had melted enough to allow seed to be available in the feeders outside. One of the jays was at a feeder very close to the glass door where I stood. The other was at a feeder a little farther away but still in good view. I don't know if the weather change could have influenced the appearance of these birds or not, but again, by physical appearance and process of elimination of other jays, I know what I saw to be Pinyon jays.

Andrew Judd (18 Feb 2018) - [Payson City Cemetery] - Red-tailed Hawk, Clark's Nutcracker, European Starling

Kayla Echols (14 Feb 2018) - [BYU Campus] - Orange-crowned Warbler. Small, quick-moving bird foraging near a flock of Juncos--about the same size as the Juncos too, but with a proportionally shorter tail. Whole body olive-yellow-green in color, including yellow undertail/vent. Very sharp, pointy bill, with a dark but rather indistinct eye-line and very faint blurry streaking on the breast. No wingbars or particularly striking field marks besides the overall yellowish color. They stayed fairly low, sometimes only a foot off the ground, and I didn't see them venture any higher than about 20 feet.
