Frank Ritcey and I headed up the Tranquille Creek trail midday today. Frank was seeking American Dipper footage and there was talk about Northern Pygmy Owls in the area as well. In the end, we were treated to great views of both and enjoyed a gorgeous day in a beautiful area. Many thanks to Frank for the invite!
One of the highlights of the hike was Frank’s extensive knowledge of tracks. We were able to identify the recent activity of several species of mouse, squirrel, Mule Deer, Coyote, Weasel, Bighorn Sheep, Snowshoe Hare, probable Bobcat, possible Mink etc… in the area.
