LOL...

Nevada we had Mountain Lions, Florida Pumas, Oregon Cougars.......All the same..


I think a Raven is bigger then a Crow, they are different.....I might have that backwards.


Ask around about how the Eagles eat the Seagulls there....Had some fishing buddies from there, crazy stories.....

So I took a hike out at Antelope island yesterday, here are some of the things I saw.

A small group of bison I woke up just after sunrise.

Attachment 2012-12-29 Antelope Island 106.JPG

Bison are not native to this island, but they were native to the surrounding Salt Lake valley.

A wise rancher who owned the island (in the late 1800's) planted them here because he thought they where going to go extinct. This heard has since been used to reintroduce bison into their former ranges around the west and mid west.

Very cool as usual, evancj! I only counted 4 deer, I'll have to look again. Found the porcupine.
How far were you from the bison? They had you in their sights! Such powerful animals. They deserve the name "beast", imo.

My husband recently came back from Edmonton. The ravens were huge, we are used to crows. He kept trying to get a picture of the one that kept landing repeatedly on the hood of their stationary car, but every time he tried the driver would shoo it off. He got so mad, but said it was pretty funny, the driver yelling at the raven and my husband yelling at the driver.

Ravens are a lot bigger. Look at the beaks, ravens have a much more robust beak than a crows. Raven vocalizations are much more coarse/croaky than crows. Ravens are associated more with wilderness/wild lands, crows are more associated with farm land, suburban, and urban areas.

Not far, maybe between 25 to 100 meters. That first group was on the other side of the ridge that I photographed them on. As I topped the ridge they were about 25 meters down slope laying in the snow. They started getting up and I back peddled pretty quick the way I came. They topped the ridged looked at me and proceeded to move up to higher ground.

They are like moose they have no fear of people, just as long as you give them respect and space they don't show much interest in people and get on with doing their own thing.
