What wild animals did you see IRL today?

Postby Dugan » Thu Feb 17, 2011 2:53 pm

Okay, I'm gonna break my own thread title to mention that I saw a raven yesterday. We see crows frequently, almost never ravens. Luckily, I was outside with Da Boyz and heard the raven call, which is how I knew it was a raven and not a crow. We heard a Black Capped Chickadee mating call.

And, watching 3 squirrels chasing around out back this morning has been very entertaining!

I saw a big crow outside my window just a little bit ago and yesterday I saw a Pileated Woodpecker fly over my house!

I also heard a very spring-like bird call the other day...I think it was the chickadee as well.

On Sunday I'm heading out on an eight-day backpacking trip with my school so hopefully I will be seeing lots of critters IRL...
I just walked. I was very happy.

I saw a woodpecker yesterday afternoon. First one in months. The squirrels are running around today. It's much warmer than it has been. Come on Spring!!! Usually have racoons and groundhogs, but haven't seen one lately.

Ooh, fun thread! Thanks, Dugan.

I saw a bald eagle today while crossing on the ferry.

I saw a squirrel today! And wild turkeys the other day... sorry, I woulda posted then, but I didn't think about it. I was surprised about the turkeys since we're in the 'burbs these days. But we do live near wild areas, so I guess it makes sense.

Lots of squirrels and geese and various other birds, but I also saw four deer hotfooting it away from the road I was riding on! Deer aren't that unusual, but in that area it's rare for me to see four at once.

On the way to the ferry this morning: a young coyote!?!?

Sitting on the pier next to the ferry dock on the mainland, coming home this afternoon: a bald eagle. That's the closest that I've seen one yet. :)

I saw coyote tracks today, moose too, but not the actual animals. I didn't notice any mammals but I did note lots of birds: crows, blue jays, chickadees, two kinds of nuthatches, two kinds of woodpeckers, and probably more I've forgotten. Oh yah, I heard a Barred Owl in the wee hours!
