A fairly rare sight around here.  Big, old Snapping turtle.  Normally you see them near water but this one was quite a ways away from any.  Must be traveling to a new watershed.  Taken 06/27/2008.

I sure have been seeing a lot of hawks around lately.  Can't complain though since they eat lots of little rodents I don't like.  Taken 10/15/2007.

A little pheasant chick.  This one obviously was born wild here instead of planted.  You can tell by the size.  Taken  7/24/2007.

I know they might be as little hard to see but there are three young pheasants here in the grass.  There is a guy I know that raises a bunch every year and he releases some of them out here.  He just released some about a week ago and these are some of them.  The natural babies around here aren't this big yet.  Taken 7/22/2007.

Not very often do I get close enough to the pheasants around here to get a picture. They must have been distracted.  A rooster and two hens.  Any bets on what the distraction was?  Taken 5/11/2007.

There are a couple of geese around here who appear to be sitting on these rocks, watching the world go by, every time I go past here.  I wish I knew what the deal was with them, I have never seen geese hang around this country.  Taken 4/25/2007.

If you look real close you can see some grouse roosting in the tree still.  It usually takes them a while to get going on these cold mornings.  Taken 1/29/2007.
