Jackson Hole Float Trip Nature Mapping Report – July 23rd, 2018

As summer brings on the heat, we were lucky enough to spot some beautiful bird specimens still in the area. Below you will find the checklists for yesterday’s float trips.  The species of the day had to be the numerous American Avocets found on the river.  They are such beautiful birds and birds of special concern to this area.  Thanks to everyone for your participation and support!

This Jackson Hole Float Trip was picturesque, as always, but was made even more charming by the presence of eleven bald eagles! We were also lucky enough to capture some beautiful photography on this float trip. Thanks to all for making this summer season one for the books!
