Critters in winter

Motorists beware! Bighorn sheep like to lick salt off highways, so it’s more likely you’ll find them in the middle of the road during winter months. These three were hanging out on Highway 75 between the Challis Buffalo Jump and Bradshaw Corner recently. In this unusually deep snow year for Round Valley and vicinity, an avalanche blocked Bradshaw Corner (background) earlier this month.

Mountain Transitions by Jim Connor

Up close… This gray-headed rosy finch was captured and its mugshot taken after it entered the photographer’s home last week. The finch had been chased inside by a hungry merlin, a pigeon hawk, and resisted capture for some hours while hiding inside. It was released in plenty of time of eat a supper of sunflower seeds. Tiny feathers make up its white eye-ring and act as eyelashes. White feathers cover the bird’s nares, nostrils, similar the eve of a thatched roof.

Mountain Transitions by Jim Connor

After the storm… Monday morning dawned with new snow and much warmer temperatures. The rising sun cast a golden glow on clouds and fog, and the light was captured in icicles hanging from a roof. Rosy finches, early diners, were actively feeding by sunrise.
