A little birdie told me…

Yellowstone National Park isn’t much known for its birds…mostly, I suppose, because of the many other unique or unusual animals and geological features found here.

Still, we have quickly found some sweet and remarkable scenes involving birds in our first few days here.

This mother duck and her family of teenagers found rest from a swift Madison River current…and safety from the swarms of drivers who stop in the road when the fowl are found on the riverbank beside the road!DSC_0541

This nest was immediately beside a raised walkway around a large, very hot water spring…and its steam would occasionally billow past. The babies were focused on mother’s comings and goings!DSC_1166

These ducks were unfamiliar to me, but I was most taken by their standing/seating arrangements!DSC_3179
