Glimpses of Resident Wildlife

As CR monitors, we are often lucky enough to glimpse a variety of animals in their home habitat, or at least evidence of their presence in the form of tracks, foraging evidence, or scat.  Here are a few photographs of some common wildlife from recent annual monitoring visits!
