Let’s start with the weird.
A baby Great Horned Owl should be cute, right? But this guy…just plain scary.
Owls are often walking the line between cute and horrifying. Not sure which side these two fall on:
Muskrats could be cute if they weren’t so, well…creepy. Those hands – yikes!
And darling little bouncy round American Dippers. So cute, right?
But take a closer look. At their feet.
Then there are the critters who aren’t exactly creepy, but they sure don’t want to spend a lot of time looking at themselves in the mirror.
The White-faced Ibis has some attractive qualities, but that beak! Those legs!
And the vulture and the turkey….well…I’m sure they have great personalities.
Then there are the critters that insist on hanging out behind all sorts of branches. Owls are pretty good at it,
but moose and bear and grouse are darned skilled at it as well.
Then there are the guys that just don’t want to hang around for long.
Sometimes, the stars align, and the critters – no matter who – are wonderful.

You have a better wildlife spotting eye than I do – I’m terrible at seeing wildlife.
Well, when they’re bumping into you, that’s not a problem!
