Re: First Trip May 14, 2021

Nice that you were able to help some people get a better look. That is one of the many fun parts of the park, helping first-timers see some animals and sharing in their excitement. Hope your trip continues to be successful.

Bears, Badger, and Bill's Birds are Back--Early May

We made several trips into the parks in early May. We were able to see wolves every time, but they were the Junction Buttes and usually a long distance out. They have a den at the original sight by Slough Creek and we were able to see several of the pups. There was a carcass in Lamar (see Rik Writer...

Re: Trip Report May 8

Sounds like you had a great day! We just stayed close to home. I fed my birds and had finches, pine siskins and chickadees. Did take a drive around the lake and saw lots of pelicans, ducks, a muskrat, several hawks, and 8 bald eagles. We then drove out to big springs with nothing there, but we did s...

Wildlife on the Trails Harriman St Park and Yellowstone

We thoroughly enjoy seeing the wildlife as we drive the roads in and around Yellowstone/Grand Teton and Island Park. But when we hike a trail and see wildlife, it adds something a little extra for us. It's hard to explain, but there is a feeling of oneness with nature out on the trail that you don't...

Re: Trip Report May 7

Rik, Great video! Thanks for sharing. Was that taken with your new camera? Great to meet you as well. We were thinking of going to Lamar today but the weather caused us to hold off. If you go to Hayden, the bears were to the west, one before Grizzly Overlook and one after down by the restroom. That ...

Re: Trip Report May 7

Glad you were able to see the wolf. We just missed a wolf as we drove out along the Madison. At least that is what people told us. It could have been as the carcass was nearby. Saw 2 grizzlies in Hayden but they were pretty far out so you didn't miss much there.

Good luck on the rest of your trip.

Re: Bill's Backyard Birds

Wow what a wonderful variety of birds you guys have visiting your back yard !!! I can only imagine how wonderful it must be. We do really enjoy the birds and living in this area. We bought this place just to be close to Yellowstone not realizing how great this whole area is! Unfortunately, it has b...

Lone Wolf Along the Madison April 29, 30

There has been a bison carcass along the Madison River just a few miles from Madison Junction and the campground. There have been a couple of coyotes on it, and a grizzly was seen in the trees behind it. (See Rik Writer's post). The star of the show has been a lone wolf that has made several appeara...

Bear 399 and Her Cubs are Alive and Well Sat. May 1

We have had a great wolf-viewing start to the spring, but had not seen any bears in Yellowstone. So we decided to take a trip down to the Tetons in the hope of seeing bears. We came in Moose-Wilson Road as it was the first day it was open to drive through, hoping to see something cool. But we saw no...

Re: Trip Report May 1-3

Hey Rik, We were at the bison carcass as well. We did get to see the wolf there Thursday night and Friday morning. Stopped by a couple more times and haven't seen anything including today. At least you got a glimpse of the grizzly. Sounds like you have seen some cool stuff otherwise. Any luck with t...
