Hey, I was wondering how much of the community does either of the above or both for that matter, because I am possibly planning something that the forum could appreciate taking part in, so yeah I guess.

Also, we could also discuss these activities on this thread, so feel free! I personally look for birds when I'm out, which I've been doing a bit more by going to my local nature reserves.

Nice photos, If I were to list all the animals that come into our backyard it would be long so I will just say no bears yet but one was caught not far from here.

I was hiking in the national forest and ran into one years ago, I could smell him before I saw him, he kept going and did not notice me. Years ago we had a few around here but they moved into the national forest or onto the Indian Reservation.

A large hawk flew into my glassed in porch by smashing through a large window. . It then broke another window trying to get out. I had to go onto the porch to open a third window to coax it out. What a mess and then add the cost of replacing the glass. :oops:
