Morning Foragers

Winter came slowly and late to the Southern High Plains this year but finally hit us with a bang just over a week ago.  Many birds were killed in the recent blizzard as were large numbers of cattle.  I suspect the large mammals are having a difficult time keeping full on the meager food provided.  The grasses, pinyon,and juniper around the yard provides a much needed browse for our live-in deer herd.

    Nice pics!
    On my Christmas day return trip from Portales to Deming I saw 4 herds of Pronghorns. Much larger than any I have seen in the past 6 years. All on Highway 60.
