The Jacks, rabbits, quail and pretty much every other living critter out there were all some where else where the weather was a little warmer I think
. We were even looking around the base of the bushes and plants to see if we saw any life signs. Like CBR mentioned, we only saw a few Blue Jays and some other very small brown Finch like birds flitting from bush to bush. Other than the birds, there were no signs of animal life, except for some dropping I saw. It was really cold and icy with snow all over the ground and mountains . Fortunately I had thermals on and my jacket, so only my face, nose and ears were cold for the most part. I took some photos so as soon as I get them downloaded I'll post them here. If it weren't for the wind, it wouldn't have been quite so bad and we probably would have enjoyed it a little more. I bet the wind (wind chill factor) was making it at least 5 degrees or more colder than the actual temperature. At least it was a good view of the mountains
. Maybe I'll head back out there when it's warmer to see if anything else is moving around besides blue jays and finches.
