Few places on Earth rival Yellowstone in winter. Imagine a landscape gripped by snow and ice with shining mountains, frozen waterfalls, erupting geysers, rising steam vents, spindrift snowstorms, and free-roaming Bison, Elk, Bighorn Sheep, Mule Deer, and Pronghorn and you have Yellowstone in winter. Add to that backdrop undulating flocks of Gray-crowned and Black rosy-finches, bugling Trumpeter Swans, and choreographed flocks of Bohemian Waxwings feeding on juniper berries; Townsend's Solitaires singing over winter territories, kayaking American Dippers, soaring Golden and Bald eagles, and active mixed flocks of Barrow's and Common goldeneyes. The number of bird species is not great, but those that remain are outstanding, and we should tally more than forty species of birds as well as ten of mammals. We will also make a major effort to locate and observe Gray Wolves and River Otters.
If you have ever dreamed of visiting Yellowstone, here's a chance to make those dreams come true, under the guidance of Terry and Karen McEneaney. Few know the park better, and their great knowledge of the area and its wildlife will make this a trip to remember.
