Wildlife

Another fabulous weekend, if not as eventful as last week. Camping, picnicking (how odd that word looks), fishing, swimming, eating out, ice-cream slurping, gold panning...

These are the animals we saw wandering around over the course of the weekend:

Cows and horses (duh--it's Montana)
Mules
Prong-horned antelope
White-tailed deer
An eagle
An osprey
A muskrat
A ram, with big curved horns
Red-winged blackbirds
Cranes
Rainbow trout
Cutthroat trout

And this morning, in our yard, a wild bunny. Child and I got to spy on him for a while as he chewed our grass. :)

The burning question is, was it muskrat Susie or muskrat Sam?

Hee! S and I saw a fox trying to bury a squirrel in the neighbors yard the other day. I love spring!

Tiffany Schmidt said...

um, Emily, that's kinda disturbing.

Suze, I'm surrounded by a different type of wildlife: pre-teens infected with it's-almost-summer-fever. They're unpredictable, smelly, & can't sit still. :)

Linder: I actually sang that song when I sang the muskrat--that is how much of a nerd _I_ am.

Emily: Ew.

Tiffany: Also Ew, but since they're AWESOME it's okay. :)
