Surveying a Future Building Site?

Posted in

On the last day of April this robin, perhaps a male, may be scouting out a May nest building site. Robins are one of our earliest birds to nest. The male arrives first and picks out an area an acre in size. When the females arrive and join their mates the final size of the mating area is reduced to about 1/3 of an acre.

"Grazing in the Grass"

Posted in

To some folks "Grazing in the Grass" is a single that hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1968 or was in the soundtrack of "The Lion King 1 1/2" in 2004 but to this buffalo in the elk pasture above Kendrick Park it is a way of life in 2012. It doesn't seem to mind the overcast sky and rainy conditions that have dampened the spirits of some this weekend.

Crossing the Line

The wind driven rain couldn't wash the white line off Scott Field allowing the official to see the ball Cheyenne East's goalie Dalton Hass has in his left arm cross over the goal line for the Sheridan Bronc score.

Number 1 Stomps All Over Number 2

Number 1 definitely beats number 2 as the #1 ranked Sheridan Broncs stomped all over the #2 Cheyenne Central Indians at Homer Scott Field Friday evening. The windy, cold conditions only seemed to help the Broncs who jumped on the scoreboard 7-minutes into the game on a penalty kick by Hunter Reece - follow the ball in this 7-photo collage.

Deer Meet Killdeer

Posted in

Two varieties of deer were enjoying rain washed grass on Friday morning. The two killdeer birds didn't seem bothered at all by the two white tail deer grazing near by on the lush, wet green grass - wet from the April showers that arrived in the Sheridan area and that are expected to last through the weekend.
