    Im not sure that I'd want to be on the same side of the canal as them.. the one up front was definitely the one in charge and was kind of showing off towards us which I would guess means to stay away.

    I am taking my dept store Schwinn out to the ranch I run to ride. It's a fun place to ride. My wild horse (mare) Sugar wants to run with me I think. If she starts doing that, it may be fun.
    I wonder if a a mt bike would be good for herding cows. I think on one you can move faster and longer than a horse; won't impress cows like a horse though.

    Fleet foxes. Four of them in south Jersey. I met them while riding in Island Beach State Park yesterday (3/11). Friendly enough and apparently very healthy but I was not exactly going to reach out and try to pet them.

    Had an owl fly over my head, like maybe a foot away. That was pretty awesome. Also almost hit a day old little deer. He was still all shakey legged and could barely walk. He/she squaked real loud and tried to run off as fast as possible, but I had to wait for a bit because it wasn't too fast and about falling over. Had me a little nervous because I knew mama deer wasn't far away and I didn't want to stress any of them. I just turned my back and slowly went the opposite direction until it was off the trail so that I didn't seem like a threat. It was pretty dang cute though, I have to say.
    The worst one was an early morning ride before work, I almost hit a skunk. It sprayed but luckily I was mostly passed it, although unfortunately I was only mostly passed it and it did get me and the bike just a little bit. I went home and took a tomato bath and about rubbed my skin off. The smell luckily wasn't too strong but at work people kept saying either, "Do you smell a skunk?" Or "Someone smells like weed." Lol, not my finest hour but it sure could have been worse.

    On our last ride, we heard a very loud "Ca-Caw"! It sounded closeby and human-like. I couldn't resist and echoed "Ca-Caw". We heard a Ca- Caw back at us. The other riders chimed in and the crow responded. Then we heard more loud caw sounds

    We looked up at the sky and spotted the crow chasing a hawk. The hawk was bigger but the crow had the upper hand.
    We suspect that the crows had a nest nearby and the hawk crossed the line

    I almost forgot about the owls! On the same canal ride that we saw the horses we kept seeing all these little owls on the side of the canal. I think that they nest in holes under the concrete

    Owls are definitely one of my favorite animals. When I was younger we had a couple of baby owls that were abandoned. We fostered them for a couple months until a refuge center could take them in, train them to hunt, and release them into the wild once they were old enough. It was so cool. They were so small they couldn't really fly yet and friendly as could be. We named them Sam and Hooter

    So far as I know the only owls we have here are the big horned owls . We hear them all the time but they mainly come out at night. They won't fly with you.

    So Jane asks Tarzan if he knows what sex is?

    He asks, "What sex?". So she explains the mechanics and asks if he's ever done that. Tarzan says, "Yes, with hole in tree".

    Jane says, "No, no, no, this is where you're supposed to do it", and lays down on the ground with her legs spread open, gesturing Tarzan to mount her.

    So Tarzan approaches, raises his right foot, and smashes down on her crotch as hard as he can. After several minutes of Jane rolling around and writhing in pain, she finally asks, "Dear god, why in the world did you do that?" To which Tarzan replies, "Check for squirrels."

    Not sure why but crows and hawks have a very combative relationship. I've seen a group of a dozen crows force a red tail hawk out of the air into a tree, then off the tree onto the ground. I don't know how far they'll take it, but it's behaviour that I've witnessed over a dozen times.

    Out of all the birds, crows are the ones I don't like. Remind me of people too much.

    I once saw a crow knock a Robin right out of the air, pecked it in the head on a fly-by.
    The Robin lay on the ground awhile, then the crow came back, picked it up and flew to a tree. I'm guessing it was dinner-time.

    Why crows chase owls.

    A good way to locate owls is to listen for the racket crows make when they find an owl. Crows harassing an owl, trying to drive it away, is called mobbing. Why do crows do this? Because owls eat crows, that’s why. Robert Burmaster who lives near Lake Nokomis took some wonderful photos that illustrate why crows make life uncomfortable for owls when they can. The first photo sho the Great Horned Owl with his captured (and apparently dead) crow. In the second photo, a live crow stands watch over the owl and his breakfast. The third photo shows the owl carrying his prey away after being dislodged by the dead crow’s compatriots.

    The photographer watched this action for about 40 minutes, the crows driving the owl from one tree to another. He said that the crow flock numbered about 50.

    Well I see deer quite often where I ride. Last year I saw a pretty good size bobcat that was surely not afraid of me and I have seen quite a few gopher snakes and on my ride yesterday I ran across my first rattlesnake.

    We didn't see many birds today, but we heard them. Including the "cheeseburger bird" . I kid you not! This bird's (chickadee) call sounds like it's saying "cheeeeeese-burger"

    And we saw found a tree pulverized by a hungry wood pecker

    I have heard that crows are very monogamous. I would imagine that they really don't like to lose their mates. Mockingbird and scissortails also don't like hawks and buzzards.

    I few years back I was at Grant Ranch County Park.
    It was the morning after a big storm and there were downed trees, branches, etc everywhere. I was on a fairly steep climb when I noticed a large log 30 yards ahead, just to the right of the trail. Figured it was storm debris. As I got closer I thought it looked more like a black cow ( cattle in the area). But NO....as I pulled alongside this 'cow", I saw it was a wild pig. They're common up there, but during the daytime? Out in the open? Well, it musta' been sick or dead or...NO! This boar hears me, gets up and is literally running alongside me as I'm grinding up the trail. He was 3-4 feet away and I swear the ground was shaking. "Holy S**t" I'm thinking...if this guy decides to make a left turn, it's gonna be like getting hit by a Buick. And I'm not gonna outrun him, that much I knew.
    Well, it seemed like forever ( but was probably only 10 seconds), but he turned right and took of into the bush. Hell, he was probabably a alarmed as I was!

    This past September we had just finished a mountain bike ride at Dead Horse Point State Park, Utah (in the Moab area) and were in the parking lot wrapping things up. Across the lot there was a van (maybe Western Spirit tour group?) whose occupants had gone off for a ride, but left two small-ish coolers by the van in the shade.

    Two crows showed up and started pecking at the tops and side of the coolers until they got the lid of one open and started to go after the contents and actually managed to get two oranges out before we ran over, closed the lids, and put rocks on top.

    Crows are big birds and have big strong bills! I was really impressed by their ingenuity and persistence. We saw the group return later and let them know why there were rocks on top of the coolers.

    Most crow incidents are really not crows but their larger cousins the,ravin. If the bird is the size of a seagull its a raven. Crows are much smaller. Both are very smart and can problem solve.

    Thanks for the clarification and you are correct. Based on the size of the birds and their large bills, the birds were ravens, not crows.

    Yep the raven is a larger version of the crow. I had a feeling they were ravens rather than crows. Ravens are a bit more bolder but both are tenacious problem solvers.

    Yep he looks like a Downey Woodpecker. I've got one that frequents my back yard. He's been very clever and hard to photograph. Always working his way to the opposite side of the tree trunk just as I'm about to snap a photo, and then flying away. Good catch with the lens on your part.

    Just an F.Y.I.

    Anything bird related can "also" be posted in the official bird thread.

    Speaking of crows: I was being heckled by one a few weeks ago, it was making a very odd call at me, which I was convinced was a human. I stopped my bike to see what the heck was going on. Now that I think about it, it may well have been a raven, they have a lot of vocal ability. I wish I could share the sound it made. I don't even know how to explain it!

    I think rabbits are the most common animals I see on the trails. They are fast little buggers and sometimes startle me running right out in front of my bike when i'm at speed.

    My most interesting wildlife encounter so far was popping into a group of elk in a copse of trees. I was only thirty or so feet away from them. It was one bull and a bunch of cows. We looked at each other for awhile, and I tried to get my phone out to snap a picture. I later learned that the bulls can be more aggressive when they are with their ladies. I'm glad they didn't charge me!

    I ran into 4 wild turkeys the other day during a ride. They left me alone, but were slightly intimidating walking along the trail!

    Ran into this guy on the trail the other day. This is actually the second one I have seen in the last week. The first took off before I could get out my camera. Now that it is warm, I will likely be seeing a lot more of them.

    Very cool and a very rare sight. A piebald deer is a color variation between a normal colored deer and a white pigmented deer. The white deer are very rare but the piebald deer is even more rare. A Whitetail deer I presume you saw.


    Some great recent contributions everyone.
