The "Other" things you see when Birding

Herps can be just as hard (or even harder) than bird identification.

Some are often best Identified by minute differences in habitat and range. If @SirVive's little guy was in coastal Oregon, without more photos I would leave it as Northern/Southern Alligator Lizard.

I know this one. It is a Green Iguana. @Seanbirdsis the go to expert on Herps though. If I know it it is because he helped me. Just as additional information I don't see these where I live in NE Florida. I have to travel further south. This is true for many of the lizards in Florida.

You are correct.

We saw this the other day while birding in Catalina State Park.  I have to say my dog was pretty interested.  These guys can run about 40 mph and are about two feet from head to tail, the size of a medium sized dog.  I think it figured we would not see it if it remained still.73164804_JackRabbit.thumb.jpg.1a410b760785d105481be91b4ce40eca.jpg

That is probably the case most of the time.  I can only imagine all the animals I walked past without even knowing because they stayed still
