    Turtles are awesome. On one of my mtb riding routes sometimes I'll take a couple mile detour to pond that has lots to see if any are out.

    Thought this was interesting to hear on the drive home from the field - Grizzly killed by mtn goat:
    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...bear-1.6184779
    Small griz at only 70kg. Maybe just left momma. Stay away from ol' billy goat gruff!

    Also got to play peak-a-boo with a large muley doe for about 1/2hr. Pics didn't turn out unfortunately. Not sure why she was hanging so close, couldn't find any other does or young in the area. No bucks in early rut either. With general hunting season on for the last few weeks I'd of thought she would be more skittish.

    Not native to WA. Theyíre all over this side of the crest.

    Probably 10+ years ago my daughters found two and put them in a jar. They showed me and as we watched the female? ate the head off the other one.

    I feel bad about the mouse I killed last night. I liked watching the little guy scurry around the living room but hanta is endemic here so he had to go.

    Yeah pretty wild. There's been a grizzly filmed down the road in the Pines but haven't seen him yet

    Dang! You're good, that's fast id.

    We thought it could've been that or some type of pygmy owl. At 4pm that thing flew into that tree ~30' in front of my group of 5 and just sat there while we took photos and talked about it. We were surprised that it didn't seem to be afraid of us and fly away... so like so many grouse or ducks you see in that area. We walked past that same spot ~10 minutes later and it moved to another tree just a few feet away but watched us all walk past again.

    Great few days of weather, with bonus critter views

    We see a Saw-whet about once a year outside our chicken coop hunting mice. They really have no concern for humans and are viscous killers of rodents.
