We also have many of these Pinyon Jays around. They're larger than the mountain bluebird, and not as vibrant blue. They have quite a loud, distinctive CAW--CAW that we hear over and over.

Other than these, we often see deer, sometimes elk, there is a den of foxes near the road not far from here, and we frequently hear coyotes in the distance. (This afternoon I saw one just outside our RV.) It's nice to be surrounded by so many critters.
