An American Badger

This was the first time I’d ever seen a Badger!
My friend Dali and I got together to do some hiking in Pinnacles National Park and on the way home we drove by one of our favorite Birding places. We were on the way out; heading home when Dali spotted this guy on a hillside. Check out those claws!

We also saw a Coyote. He was busy hunting Voles, and Ground Squirrels for dinner.

…and we saw a Greater Yellowlegs. The background is awful! I’d like to get a picture of one with a nice background one day.

and no country back roads drive would be complete without a Cute Cow.  I hope she wasn’t too disappointed that I didn’t bring fresh hay.

We didn’t see any Eagles, but it was another fun, and exciting day in the country full of wildlife.
