Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) [CJ Carter Photo]

The eyes of Great Horned Owls are nearly as large as those of humans and are immobile within their circular bone sockets. Instead of turning their eyes, they turn their heads. Therefore, their neck must be able to turn a full 270 degrees in order to see in other directions without moving its entire body.

Rocky Mountain Big Horned Sheep (Ovis canadensis) are one of three species of mountain sheep in North America and Siberia; the other two species being (Ovis dalli), that includes Dall Sheep and Stone's Sheep, and the Siberian Snow Sheep ( Ovis nivicola). Wild sheep crossed the Bering Land Bridge from Siberia during the Pleistocene period (~750,000 years ago).

Wild sheep live in social groups, but rams and ewes typically meet only to mate. Rams live in bachelor groups and females live in herds with other females and their young rams. When fall mating arrives, rams gather in larger groups and ram fighting escalates.

Visual notes from the field

Almost a year later I finally had a chance to skim through some images. Below are a few shots from the filming of a short documentary on the program.

Any comments, feedback, or cheeky jokes are most appreciated.
