Slow and steady wins the race.
Have a wonderful, slow and safe Saturday.
Mom doing her best to make sure a yearling Elk has washed behind their ears.
Happy Friday and wishing you all the best.
Both the Bull and Cow Elk dotting the landscape enjoyed a little late morning nap on this early spring day.
If it weren’t for the extra cup of coffee we had this morning we would join right in.
While getting ready to go for a hike a while ago we were pleased to have the company of numerous Pinyon Jays buzzing about in the parking area collecting seeds.
According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology Pinyon Jays are highly social birds of the lower mountain slopes of the western United States, the Pinyon Jay is specialized for feeding on pine seeds. Each jay stores thousands of seeds each year, and has such a good memory that it can remember where most of them were hidden.
Now if only I could bottle that kind of memory and take a sip every morning I might never forget where I placed my keys.
With snow still covering the fields the Mountain Bluebirds have made their return. Yes, at this point there are only a few scattered along the county roads staking out the prime real estate and empty nesting boxes, but what a welcome sight they are.
The male a brilliant blue perched upon an old fence post was a welcome sight on this mid-March afternoon.
