Ruffed Grouse, Moose, Downy (20140419) Sorry folks I have Grizzly fever.
With dinner guests expected this afternoon it had to be a short run out to the Ranch. Like the heading says, I have grizzly fever. After spotting fresh tracks on a coupleof recent trips and some fresh snow last night I had to get out and see if we could get eyes on a bear. No luck with a physical bear, but we did get more tracks, I would guess to be less than 24 hours old.Early in we found this young bull still sporting one of his antlers.
We finished the quick trip up with a couple of kestrels. Today we found them in some sun. I love how the snow was packed against the fence post!
Now for a front view. These are truly beautiful birds.
We were home by 11:00 a.m. Not too shabby. Looking forward to the Sunday walk tomorrow as everyday there is new material appearing from the south!
