November 29, 2014... Driving outside of the city again

My friend Kiri and I went out driving around the outskirts of the city for an hour. It was a beautiful day but again roads were so slippery and it was much colder than the day before when we went out.






This bird was just too far away... no idea what it was. 



Sharp Tailed Grouse... we saw quite a few, I only managed to catch these ones. These are another first for me... love seeing new things.




3 male pheasants.




Tons of Canada Geese that day, flying everywhere.



Male and female deer... I just managed to catch them as we were driving.

We saw 3 coyotes at 3 different times... they were running fast and I just barely caught this one, which is why its so blurry.
