 Baby Time!

Coyote Babies


June is baby time all over the park. Predators, like coyotes, give birth about a month before the herding species. Early June is a great time to see Coyote puppies and Great horned Owlets. By mid month many of them will be well on the way to adulthood eating solid food prey. On the other hand elk, moose calves, mule deer fawns, and big horn lambs will be nursing for another month. Those sweet moments are amazing to witness, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled while you travel through the park.
