Big horn sheep

Yeah, big horn sheep aren't birds; but most people I know enjoy other wildlife too. I saw this small herd of big horn sheep in Western Fremont Co yesterday on my way back from checking on the American Dippers.

Actually the canyon that H50 runs through between Canon City and Salida is called Bighorn Canyon because of the many big horn sheep that reside on the rugged, wild terrain that is mostly BLM public lands through much of this section. The young sheep are yearlings.


Save trees in the Boreal forest for birds, not for paper--Opt out of catalogues
