Yellowstone Black Bears

Postby Deb1741 » Sun Jun 21, 2015 7:39 am

My grandson and I took our annual June trip to Yellowstone from June 11-17th this year. It is definitely a black bear year as we had 21 black bear sightings. A few of our favorites (pics taken by my grandson):

Hey Deb

Nice wolf video and bear shots.
You and your grandson really do nice work.
Bear cubs are soooo cool to watch.
And I love the captions.
"Walking the Line" LOL!!
Well done!

Thanks Pete,

Here is a video of a black bear sow with 2 cubs of the year. The video is shaky because it was windy. I am going to order a monopod walking stick for my point and shoot so I can alleviate some of the shaking. Click on HD for better viewing.

We had a good trip for animal sightings. We saw a ton of mountain goats, 6 moose, 21 black bears sightings (some the same bears on different days and areas), 13 grizzly bears (none close enough for pics which is a first for us), 10 wolves, 1 fox, 4 bighorn sheep, 3 coyotes, heron rookery (8 nests with chicks on 7 of the nest- one nest had 2 chicks and another nest had 3 chicks), baby pronghorn, pika, 6 trumpeter swans real close (first for us), and 2 bald eagles twice- once being harassed by the ravens and another time feeding their chick in the nest. Braeden hasn't downloaded the videos and pics he took while digi-scoping the eagles yet. I'm curious to see if he got any video of them feeding it. Through the other scope it was awesome.
