Let nature help you celebrate. No bloody polluting fireworks.

Pronghorn

Observed over 300 pronghorn while traveling through Wyoming. Saw 100+ in one herd. Very impressive. Tracks in the snow show how they approach a fence on a wide front but then crawl under the fence (as noted in behavioral papers) in only one place following one another.

Nurture nature.

Mink and Otters

Until the other day, we had not seen any signs of mammal activity at the Watson Hollow pond. One morning we observed what looked like a mink swim out of the cattails and across the pond. That was exciting.

We have not seen any otters at Watson Hollow going on two summers. Watson Hollow was dredged about 18 months ago and that may have something to do with the change in wildlife activity here.

Interestingly, the otters’ toilet area was not burned. 16 Aug 2007

Nature is not static and changes will always occur but it seems we tend to get upset when those changes happen during our lifetime.
