After dinner Carl and I went over to Madison to see some bison by the Madison River. The park service had everyone who was driving the road pull over to the side and turn of their engines as they once again herded to bison and their babies away from the park border with West Yellowstone. This is the 3rd time that I am aware of, there might of been more. The herding process caused a 2 hour delay on the road but it is quite a show for anyone parked on the side. I know I enjoyed it when I got caught up in the herding. Though Carl and I did see some bison with an intermingling of elk there was only 2 babies to be found. Hopefully all the mama bison escorted their younguns further to the interior of the park ~ and hopefully they are heading to Hayden Valley.
While on the topic of Hayden Valley I did my nightly drive through there. The bison are really moving in! As well as the elk herds. Yippee! The baby elk are usually born the first week in June so we are not too far off. I took video of a big bison swimming across the Yellowstone River and then took the time to watch a flock of birds swarm over Elk Antler Creek. They remind me of a sheet as they all fly in unison.
