The whitetail deer are everywhere right now and so are the wild turkeys. I just wish the deer would stay away from the road.

Cool thread.

So, I moved back to Colorado this spring.
I don't recall ever seeing them here in winter, before, but there are several Robins around my neighborhood.

I know Robins are pretty commonplace, but I have been watching them for years.
I never saw them here in the winter, before.

Two dead skunks on the road this morning. It really cooled down overnight, and we will be going back to more winterlike conditions. With the windchill it feels more like -18F today. I have never seen skunks out in January before...

Maybe it means an early spring for you there.... I like robins...they use mud though, to make nests... they are a mix of sticks and moss and mud and are really heavy. ( I used to "collect" vacated bird nests...)

Pretty darn chilly, taigagirl! How the animals make it through a winter like that is more than I absorb... I think it is cold if it gets to say 38F.

I don't know about early Spring. I think these guys never left.

Don't have digital camera to take a picture or the know-how to post pictures to the web...I'm very low tech when it comes to gadgets...
no camera phone, I-phone etc.
