Re: Spring 2019 Trip Report (Updated through June 4)

Beryl has apparently just kicked her two-and-a-half year olds out. Just in the last couple days. Obsidian has the new cubs (was three, now two).

Re: Early May trip

Thanks Dorothy. The eagle/beaver interaction must've been fun to see. Congrats on the badger.

Re: Muskrat and Merlin

The Merlin is an interesting sighting. I don't think I've ever seen one here either, but someone did just see one a few days ago at Bridge Bay while waiting on the owl. Nice finds.

http://www.maxwaugh.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/bison0407.jpg May 31, 2019 Friday was brutally long, but fun. I kicked things off at 4am following about two hours of restless sleep.

Re: Spring 2019 Trip Report (Updated through May 30)

Thanks, Linda and Dorothy. Linda, two other things I remember from that day: While I had my rear half out of the car trying to pry the card loose, it proceeded to rain. Hard. To add insult to injury. And you mentioned Simon. That was the day that I spent ten hours at Otter Creek waiting for the Cany...

Re: Spring 2019 Trip Report

Thank you, guys. Hopefully I'll have time to come up with another report soon. Right now, my brain is fried and I'm forcing myself to sleep in tomorrow (even if that means 6am)!

Spring 2019 Trip Report (May 25 - June 7)

For the first time I debated whether to write anything. I'm giving it a go, and will try to post updates with links to my full reports here.
