Some critters I saw on a Friday hike.
5 months ago

I went up to the top of Big Cottonwood canyon on Friday for a hike. Here are some of the animals I ran across.

Two mule deer fawns on the side of the mountain rushing to catch up with mom.

Song Sparrow .

The smallest bird in North America, the Calliope Hummingbird (female)

Calliope Hummingbird (male)

Young chipmunk

Young uinta ground squirrels.

I literally almost stumbled over this little guy. He was in full stealth mode right in the middle of the trail. I took a few quick shots and walk up the trail about 50 yard to wait for mom to show up.

About 20 minutes later she came by to collect her fawn. The fawn is just on the other side of the log the mom is standing next to.

A little red squirrel that came down from the trees to check me out.

A large bull moose in the willows.

Thanks for looking everyone.
