Critters in the Field

Sometimes in the field we sneak up on critters.  This was from a Probmon run last year that we did late in the season.  It was cold outside and we happened upon this guy sunning himself on a rock.  Kelly gently snached him up and began looking him over.  Before she set him down, she handed him off to me for a minute to check him out.  I love finding  animals, especially the ones you can play with.  The other day I saw a wolf coyote running across the road near a station I was working.  I don’t think I would have tried to hold him, but it would have been nice to get a better look.  Hopefully there’s enough time left in this season to see some local wildlife.
