    Guess I won't be filling the bird feeder this morning. Silly buck, what a funny place to lay down.

    (glare on the left is because I took the pic through the window of the laundry room door and the sun is shining on the glass)

    Hiker interrupts bears having sex and suffers the consequences
    http://www.someecards.com/news/weird...-consequences/
    A 54-year-old hiker named Dan Richman was mauled by a bear in the Sierra Madre foothills of California on Monday and a state warden thinks it may be because he interrupted two bears getting it on, the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The deer aren't exactly wild here; I find them looking in our front windows a lot.

    OTOH, the ground squirrels are pretty industrious. Took them three days to dig those tunnels (12" diameter) and move those rocks

    Ground squirrel is a burrowing rodent that hangs out in forestland. The ones around here look like this


    Bodies maybe 4" long x 2" wide; prolly weigh 24oz. I've seen 3 sec hang times when they jump across the trail.

    Riding buddy had one try to run through his front wheel last season - didn't end well for squirrel, and this kind of jerky-like stuff hardened between some spokes - was a bitch to get cleaned out.

    Most dangerous animals around here are the deer mice that occasionally scurry around our living room--there've been a couple of bad hantavirus cases here.

    That's a chipmunk no?

    Didn't know they could move rocks.

    Their singing is abhorrent.

    A chipmunk can be usually be distinguished because it also has stripes on its face. That little guy looks like a ground squirrel to me.

    Not sharks but I did see an Orca take a seal off of Whidby island. Orca came out of nowhere, breached, grabbed seal and dove. Pretty impressive when sitting in a sea kayak 50 yards away...

    Speaking of aquatic mammalia, some shots of the not-so-wild sea lions off of Espiritu Santo in Sea of Cortez. One of the buggers ripped my snorkel off my mask
