"Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam, and the deer and the antelope play."  We were given a home at Wichita Mountains NWR where the buffalo roamed, and now we have a home where the antelope play.

The fastest mammal in North America at 40 miles per hour!!!  Females usually produce twins and we were fortunate to get this photo even though it is not the best.  This is the first time we have ever seen baby Pronghorn, much less twins!!!

Females have shorter horns lacking the prong.  Some times they have no horns.  When they become alarmed, the white rump patch is flared and erect.  

Until next time...

  1. Your pronghorn photos made me a bit homesick for Sevilleta NWR, NM..... and that scaled quail... well, that's one of the endangered species at Buenos Aires NWR in AZ. By the way Bill K. came up for the fishing derby yesterday... which was quite a success. Moosehorn has theirs next Saturday... I bet they wish you were there.
