A Few More Birds

April 18, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Here are a few more birds that call Yellowstone home. I've previously posted photos of these species but wanted to highlight them again.  Above left is the largest of the birds I've posted, the Pine Grosbeak.  Top left is a Pine Siskin while bottom left is the Red Breasted Nuthatch and bottom right is the Mountain Chickadee.  The last two are among the smallest birds in the ecosystem but all rely on seeds as a mainstay for their diet.  Yellowstone, covered largely in pine trees, makes good habitat for seed eating birds.  Yellowstone opens for the summer season on Friday, but I'm currently on the road and will miss the first days in the park.  Stay tuned and I'll will post more next week!
