Apart from spring bear viewing we see many other wild animals around us. Those we see fairly regularly include coyotes, elk, porcupine, moose and beavers. Among our rarer sightings are wolves, lynx, bobcats and cougars.
The spring is also the best time to see our rich bird life.
You will see many of the songbirds that gather in our garden and you may also see bald eagles, various woodpeckers, and different types of hawks. In the alpine we often see Clark’s Nutcrackers and Grey Jays.
You will almost certainly see dozens of hummingbirds who return after wintering in central America, before heading further north.
