Early Arrivals – Mountain Bluebird Male on Valentines Day.

mountain-blue-bird-early-arrival-ywguiding-2-14-2017 Over the last 15 years I’ve been here in the Rockies these striking migrants usually arrive the first week of March. Two weeks early may be an aberration but birds migrating earlier and earlier is one of the thousands of signs of #ClimateChange impact on our world.

Lion Research

Here in Estes Park there is an active Mountain Lion research project going on, but I spent my morning studying Nittany Lions playing in Beaver Stadium at my ole university Penn State. I owe a lot of Yellow Wood Guiding’s success to my education at Penn State where I studied my undergrad in Recreation and Park Management: Speciality Environmental Interpretation. WE ARE PENN STATE!
