I finally downloaded my pictures and did my logs. I saw this gator while riding my bike along Buffalo Bayou to get New Bridge Across Buffalo Bayou.

I also spotted this little parakeet in the bushes when I was looking for Cache Deposit Box v2.0. I tried to catch him but he was too skittish and took off.

Today was a first for us--we saw wallabies while we were geocaching in Australia in Litchfield National Park.  We didn't snap an photos of them.  I'm pleased to add two other observations--we didn't see any crocs and we passed 1600 finds today.

On our last day geocaching in Darwin, we saw black cockatoos (we saw sulfur crested cockatoos almost daily) and wallabies.

Tealcat had a camera that she liked a couple of years ago, but it was broken.  She tried a different camera, and didn't really like it.  So she went online and found the same camera that she used to have for a good price, and bought it just before we went to Australia.  As you can well imagine, the good price was because the camera was flawed.  Most of the pictures were trash--it seems to be a depth of field problem.

 

She took a few pictures with one of the Normettes iPods, but not while we were actively out caching.

 

Over the next couple of days, I'll see if we have any photos to share of the wildlife that we saw.

Saw this while trying to figure out the approach to GC50YMQ off of Terry Hershey Trail. Not exactly a critter but certainly a curious object. Anyone know what it is? I'm thinking a county mosquito trap.

Some kind of bug trap.  In Minnesota, they apparently use them to trap the Emerald Ash Borer.

http://coord.info/GC57Q4X  My Bride and I walked up to the heavily overgrown area only to encounter deep growling in the bushes in front of us.  We backed out very quickly and two scraggly abandoned dogs limped out.  Seeing they were starving, we emptied out everything edible for them, plus water.  We called every possible animal control agency, but seeing it is out in Liberty County, no one will take responsibility for the poor animals, so I called the CO, MarineBuck.  He assured me he would rescue the dogs if there is any possible way.  My Bride cried most of the way home over these poor animals.  People need to realize turning a domesticated animal loose in the country dooms them to starvation.  This was off of 1960 on FM615 between Dayton and Huffman.

Which is exactly how I ended up with (at one time) 7 dogs! Hence, Canine Queen!

Here are some birds seen while caching NM/West Texas:

(links to Cornell online due to all personal pictures too big to attach + quality was ehhh anyway)

 

 

Above seen while walking to What State Are We In? at NM/TX border

Both above seen while looking for Spider in my Room cache in Alamagordo, NM

 

A complete shock crossing the road as we were leaving our KOA in Carlsbad on our way to Carlsbad Caverns

 

All the below birds seen while in Davis Mountain SP (which BTW has an awesome bird blind/"Interpretive Center")

My husband spotted like 4 road runners in a 10 mile span;

this is not including birds commonly seen in our part of Texas either

 

1 non-bird by the Davis Mountains SP official cache:

Oh! & I've been told this is Batman  :lol:

(My other half & I did the "Hall of the Great White Giant" tour at Carlsbad Caverns)

Last week, after hiking part of the Nevada Star at night and driving back to a spot on a National Forest road we had picked out for camping, we had several jack rabbits jumping across the road in front of us.  It made us wonder how many we had passed while hiking that stayed hidden.  We probably passed many snakes, too.  BTW, caching at night in the desert with solar LED lights pointing the way was awesome.

Ran across this guy a while back in Challenger Park.  He or she's a juvenile water moccasin, though he was some distance from the water.

Found this one long ago at at a babslover cache near a bridge where I10 crosses Old River.  He's at least 15 feet.
