reconnect with nature....crow crossing

Crow crossing. 
The tracks I find each morning remind me how many different birds and animals live on the mesa and how busy this place must be when I'm not around!
Linking up with Chrisy down under at living a good north coast life and sharing a little of nature's beauty.

  1. Smart birds to walk in a single line, that way no one knows how many there really are ... we have very large crows here & I am often amused that they walk so much rather than fly. This morning I watched a pair walk around the field behind us, which was a corn crop earlier in the year. I know they were out walking the field to find buried gold corn nuggets but they walked away rather than flew away when the Blue Jays started to pest them or those crazy squirrels were muscling in.

    1. They are very smart birds! The crows are huge here too, and they rule the mesa, always watching, always talking back and forth.
      Sounds like your crows are definitely in charge, defiantly walking instead of flying away! It is such a great thing to watch the wild birds and animals in action!

    1. Thanks! The animal tracks on the mesa fascinate me. So much activity, most of it at night. It's a busy place!

  3. Such an awesome photo Julie. Thanks for participating in the link up again. I always love to see what else you've found up there on the Mesa.
    Have you ever considered visiting at night, and spotlighting? Would be really interesting to see what goes on when you aren't there :)

    1. The more time I spend out there, the more the mesa reveals to me. I often wonder what goes on out there at night. It's wild and mysterious....maybe a little scary. Something I definitely might try though. The photography might be best in the really early morning.....now you have me thinking.... :)

    3. That's the thing....I worry about the dark mesa just outside the big city. I may just wait till I get to Colorado before I do my nighttime wildlife watching. :)

    4. Ah well that makes sense, it's a different sort of wildlife your worried about at night :) I've always said that humans are the scariest animal on the planet.

  4. I love finding tracks. Last week I saw cat tracks in the fresh snow and it was interesting to see where they meandered. And I was hoping he was an indoor cat just out for an invigorating stroll, not a stray.

    1. I love finding tracks too! The interesting part is trying to identify them and figure out what the animal was up to. Hopefully yours was a pet cat out for a stroll, not a stray out in the cold.

  5. Whoa! Maybe you should stick around more often!
    Just think of what goings on you could capture on camera.
    Those tracks in the pretty beige sand are delightful!

    1. That's what I'm thinking! If I could figure out a way to sit still for hours, watch without being seen, and take photos of all the wild happenings, I'll be there!
