Nature Mapping Wildlife Report for September 10, 2017: Jackson Hole Wildlife

As summer comes to a close, we were lucky enough to spot some beautiful bird specimens still in the area. As is typical of the end of the summer season, bird activity is modest but still boasted sightings of 27 Spotted Sandpipers, 49 Cedar Waxwings, seven American Robins, and four Canada Geese. Not to mention an impressive eleven Bald Eagles who seemed very territorial and provided quite a few interesting interactions from our vantage point on the boat.

This float was picturesque, as always, but was made even more charming by the presence of three Mule Deer and a fawn grazing by the shoreline. We were also lucky enough to capture some beautiful photography on this float trip, capturing memories that will last for many seasons to come. Thanks to all for making this summer season one for the books!Jackson Hole Wildlife - Flaot TripsJackson Hole Wildlife - Flaot Trips
