Much of our birdlife has migrated away this time of year, but rough-legged hawks migrate to Jackson Hole from Arctic regions. We have been observing these raptors on our safaris for over a month and can expect to see them regularly through most of the winter.

Elk haven’t returned to the National Elk Refuge in great numbers yet, but we can expect several thousand to show up shortly.
