June in Rocky Mountain National Park: It's Baby Time!

Coyote Cubs

The month of 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-moth, many of them will be well on their way to adulthood, which means eating solid food prey.  On the other hand, elk, moose calves, mule deer fawns, and big horn lambs will still be nursing for another month.  Spying a mother nursing her young, or playful pups wrestling are sweet moments to witness in the wild, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for them as you travel through RMNP this month!
