Faunalog

I saw some pretty cool animals on my trip to southern Utah, so I made myself a little list:
1 red fox (the first I’ve seen in the wild)
3 antelope
1 jackelope–well, ok, it turned out to be a jackrabbit, but it was running toward me in the tent and it looked fierce!
1 hummingbird
3 sagebrush swifts
2 horned toads (one big, one little)
1 chipmunk
2 squirrels
a whole crowd of vultures that were waiting for me to die so that they could eat my eyes out.
Not bad, eh?

  1. I’m surprised you only saw one chipmunk and two squirrels. I guess I had forgotten how Utah isn’t really infested like the Midwest is. I watched a squirrel eating my corn this morning, and went out to find that he’d eaten about 6 ears and felled a few of the stalks.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a red fox.

  2. Yeah, squirrels are pests here! We had one living in our attic!
