 MULE DEER

  Over 7,000 mule deer winter in the Boise River Wildlife Management Area, adjacent to Harris   Ranch development. View this 4-minute video on deer migration in Wyoming; the deer in the   Boise Foothills migrate similar distances from their summer range..

 

  Long-Billed CURLEW

 The long-billed curlew is the largest sandpiper in North   America. Adults have a very long bill curved downwards,   a   long neck and a small head; the female has a much   longer   bill than the male.  


 PRONGHORN                                                                                                                                                       The pronghorn is the fastest land mammal in the Western Hemisphere - it can run 35 miles per hour for up to 4 miles; 42 miles per hour for 1 mile; and 55 miles per hour for half a mile!  It is often cited as the second-fastest land animal, second none only to the cheetah..

 

 ELK

  Elk seem to prefer mountainous country with mixed open, Image result for idfg raccoon images
grassy meadows, marshy meadows, river flats, aspen parkland, as well as coniferous forests, brushy clearcuts, forest edges, and shrub steppe. Some populations live year-round in sagebrush desert, using grass-shrub for feeding and tall 
 shrub  or pole timber for resting in spring. 
 

 

  Amphibians

  At Harris Ranch, amphibians can likely be found along or near the Boise River, the artificial trout spawning stream, in wetland areas, and along or near canals. Although generally associated with wet areas, some amphibian species can range quite a distance from a given water source. For those species the much of the total Harris Ranch property may be important habitat.
