We were traveling home from a trip the other night. I was driving, and played my favorite game of "count the wildlife". It helps me stay more aware of all the animals I need to dodge, LOL. I start my count when I'm about 75 miles from home, when I turn on to the super-quiet country roads. I counted 87 mule deer, 3 fox, and 5 rabbits. And those were only the ones I saw clearly on the edge of the road. There were a ton more unidentified blurs on the edge of my headlights, but I never count those. And I almost hit an entire herd of javalina (also known as collard peccaries)! There were about a dozen animals clustered in the middle of the road. I had to hit the brakes and come to a dead stop. The javalina, of course, didn't bother to hurry across. They're arrogant little suckers that make way for no vehicle. I had to sit and wait while they leisurely meandered their way to the other side of the road. My personal high count for deer on that stretch is 112, and my low is somewhere in the 40s. I also usually see at least one or more elk. When the warmer weather hits, I will see a ton of armadillo, porcupine, skunk, turkey, turkey vultures, hawks and ravens. I think the rarest animal I've seen has been an albino crow, but I've also seen a peregrine falcon. My personal goal is to see one of the mountain lions or bears that live around here, but alas, no luck so far. What kind of wildlife do you see where you live? Are they as numerous as they are out here, or is a sighting fairly rare?
