my visit to Yellowstone National Park

I just returned from a family vacation to Yellowstone National Park, so I thought I’d share some pics of the cool wildlife we were able to see. What a beautiful part of our country! Click on the pics to see them better.

Bison (also referred to as buffalo) This guy is shedding out. Bison are herbivores that can weigh in between 900 and 2100 pounds! They are massive.

Mountain Bluebird (he and his mate were delivering bedding and bugs to their nest!) These migratory birds use pre-existing cavities to use for their nests.

Moose and calf (so cute!) I learned that males shed their antlers every year, so the males we saw did not have big antlers yet.

Yellow Bellied Marmot — Does it remind you of a certain Museum woodchuck? (They are closely related.)

Also got to see grizzly bear, black bear, elk, pronghorn, western tanagers, ravens, bald eagles, beavers, white pelicans, and gray wolves— very different from our Museum red wolves!
