A very HAPPY BIRTHDAY...

to the lovely and effulgent myfeetshowit! May your day be filled with prezzies and calorie-free cake, hon.

We spent the day at Antelope Island. We saw, in no particular order:
pronghorns
bison (with babies)
jackrabbits
California gulls
Franklin's gulls
ring-billed gulls
avocets
yellow-headed blackbirds
red-winged blackbirds
regular blackbirds
meadowlarks
loggerhead shrikes (new to my life list!)
chukars
burrowing owls
long-billed curlews (new to my life list!)
barn swallows
ravens
a ring-necked pheasant
horned larks
Canada geese
cormorants
eared grebes
a cinnamon teal
several different raptor species I couldn't identify
some sort of little gray tweety bird I also couldn't identify
two species of lizards
numerous different species of butterflies
white-lined sphinx moths
a snake tail disappearing into the grass-type stuff that passes for vegetation

Yes, I took pictures. No, you can't see them yet.

Seriously, y'all, when you go to your state and national parks? Get out of the car and hike at least one pretty long path. You'll see things that you totally would have missed.

Of course, I have new blisters now. But it was a very satisfying day.

kantayra, did you see this? I nearly died of cute.
