Nature Mapping Wildlife Report for July 16, 2017: Jackson Wyoming Float Trips

Birds of a feather float together! This week we had the highest number of individual bird identifications of the season so far: 426 among 36 bird species observed. Although the Yellow Warbler (52), Song Sparrow (40), Spotted Sandpiper (44), and Cliff Swallow (43) battled for the top spot, it was the Canada Goose (65) that we saw the most of this week. And, for the second time this year, we observed ten Great Blue Herons.

It was also an exciting week for mule deer sightings as two were seen, marking only the second trip we’ve spotted them this year on one of our Jackson, Wyoming float trips. What a clear and beautiful week for a scenic trip down the river! Join us next time because you won’t want to miss this successful wildlife-spotting season.
