Marmot - Spring Creek Ranch, Jackson Hole, WY
We had several more “firsts” of Spring on yesterday’s safari including our first sighting of sandhill cranes, northern harriers, uinta ground squirrels and yellow-bellied marmots (pictured right).

The marmots and ground squirrels are exciting to see this time of year since they have been tucked away in deep hibernation for several months. We watched several moose as well and some of the bulls have about an inch of velvety antler growth.
