Nature Mapping Wildlife Report for August 6, 2017: Jackson Hole Float Trips

Jackson Hole Float Trips

Molting birds made for a quiet bird-watching week, though the river’s unparalleled beauty and crisp rolling waters mean no float trip with us is ever a dull one! We still saw 21 bird species this week, including a Rufous Hummingbird and a Barrow’s Goldeneye, though the highlight of the trip was seeing a roly-poly marmot with its tail bouncing in the air as it ran.

As migrating birds begin to fly through the area in the coming weeks we are bound to see and identify more species, so our upcoming Jackson Hole float trips are ones you won’t want to miss!
