It was a birdy day. Saw some very nice birds! Some of my "first of season" birds were dark-eyed junco, white-crowned sparrows, and red-shafted northern flickers. Also saw chipping sparrows, vesper sparrows, cardinals, blue jays, red-tailed hawks, mourning doves, meadowlarks,black vultures and turkey vultures.
Are you on the fence? I'm not and I have voted BUT this is not about that. The following is about stuff on the fence, my barbwire fence!
Armadillo? That is what it was. It had died about a month ago. Gracie did try to gnaw on it then. It was not stinky enough to roll in at that time. But she decided to bring the tail over to the path yesterday. Only thing left of it now is the tail and the part of the outer "shell" or carapace. I imagine the coyotes took the rest.
Stay warm and keep looking!
Can you guess what this came from? I will give another hint at the bottom of the post.
Yesterday's finds were great. The orchids were the highlight of the day's adventure, but certainly not all. The following are some of the other highlights.
