We are blessed to finally live in a beautiful place that is rich in wild critters. Unfortunately we are in outage at the power plant right now, and I am working nights. Otherwise I might have been there for these sightings. Corie and Grace saw a falcon in the back yard. It pretty much had to be a falcon, based on its behavior, as it was chasing other birds around.
I was more unhappy that I also missed the first moose sighting, apparently an adolescent bull, about a mile from the house.
