I'm spending the summer house sitting here in Bend's Higher Ground Co-housing Community[https://sites.google.com/site/highergroundcohousing/] for my friends Perry and Carol who are leaving next week to bike across the U.S.
I've been getting out for a short morning walk to get familiar with the local critters since I arrived on Sunday afternoon. It's going to take me awhile to figure out what all I'm seeing but here are a couple that I spotted this morning:
Western Scrub Jay
And this grey squirrel was pretty curious about what I was up to.
