Re: What...

Good question Bob. Some folks say the sheep droppings taste beter than goat.

I look more at their tracks and the droppings around the tracks. I am sure that a biologist could answer that question but I have not delved into that scientific venue as of yet.

I'm afraid to ask you how you ID the tracks...

Re: What...

I added an image for track identification in the article.

Also you can follow these two links and let the experts show you the difference between the species.

a 10 for any article with the word "poop" in the title. Plus, pikas are my favorite lagomorphs.

Flathead, glad to see you're getting out in the park for both recreation as well as science. Excellent.
