    The trouble with this thread is that cycling is where I see the least amount of wildlife! I'm more likely to see critters when I'm moving at running speed ... or just staying home.

    This time of year a lot of nocturnal moms come out earlier in the day because they're extra hungry from pregnancy or lactation.

    Yesterday I saw six great blue herons ... one flew across the road right in front of me ... remembering Gil Scott-Heron who died on Friday.

    On Wednesday night, a whole BIG flock of turkeys. One of them flew across the road in front of us. There must have been 40.

    A little garter snake crossing the road, on my run today. :)

    On Thursday, a young buck, just getting this year's antlers.

    Today, a herd of prancing horses ;) - aka some Ferrari club out for a Sunday ride. That was a treat to hear and see.

    We encountered a pair of sandhill cranes in the same area we often see them - I guess they nest there - but this time they were in the bike lane and not a bit spooked by our 23 mph paceline. We had...

    We saw a red fox today. First live one I've seen in more than a year. Only two of our group made it over the crest of the hill in time to see the fox, before it darted into the woods.

    Ever see an armadillo close up? They're hairy, or I guess you'd say bristly, like pigs. Strange animals.

    Just a normal New Yorker, being out at noon is the raccoon equivalent of "up all night." ;)

    Are armadillos nocturnal? We see them all the time during daylight hours at Canaveral Seashore....

    Twin spotted fawns, no bigger than medium-sized dogs, that we startled out of their resting place. I was a little afraid Mom would come bounding across our path, but we never saw her.

    Really I see more wildlife when I stay home. :p I'm moving too fast when I'm on the bike.

    On Saturday, a red fox - first one I'd seen in about four years - a blue heron trying to swallow a fish three times as big as its head - and a yellow Lab who had ahold of a raccoon.
