Do you recognize this bobcat? That’s because he has been popping up on our camera traps since 2021!!
Since he is such a familiar face, we thought it would be the perfect time to finally give him a name!
We asked you where we should put our newest Grizzly Gulch audio recorder and the votes are in! This spring, we will be placing our NEW Grizzly Gulch audio recorder near a Red-tailed hawk’s nest!
The Red-tailed hawk is one of the largest birds of prey you’ll spot in North America, despite the largest females only weighing about 3 pounds! They are also the most widespread bird in North America and can be found in every state in the United States and in the south, through Mexico and into Central America.
A Red-tailed hawk’s diet typically consists of a wide variety of animals including chipmunks, groundhogs, squirrels, mice, rats, snakes, and other birds! Red-tailed hawks spend most of their hunt in the air before they surprise their prey by diving down and snatching them.
The Migratory Bird Act protects bird species like Red-tailed hawks from illegal catching, hunting, or killing. The IUCN has them listed as “Least Concern” with populations increasing!
Check out this live footage of a male moose running on a trail at Grizzly Gulch!
Did you know moose can run at speed of up to 35 miles per hour?!
This frequently used game trail is no stranger to large animals including bears, wolves, coyotes, and even bobcats! It’s no wonder this large moose is trying to make his way through it in a hurry!
The moose of Grizzly Gulch LOVE to munch on the willow trees that have taken over a bit part of the forested landscape here, so there is no shortage of food for these giant creatures.
How fast do you think this moose is running?!
The holidays are right around the corner, Creature Heroes!
This holiday season, we challenge you to create your very own holiday decorations and host a holiday craft sale with your friends and family. If you’re looking for some ideas to get you started, holiday ornaments are always a popular choice! They hold a lifetime of memories and can be used year after year! New Year decorations are another popular item. Help your family and friends ring in the new year with some awesome handmade New Year’s Eve decorations!
Send us photos of the holiday crafts you created and the holiday sale you hosted by January 15, 2023 for a chance to be featured on our social media channels and for a chance to win some awesome Creature Hero gear!
These images were taken by Grizzly Gulch’s camera trap network. These cameras are positioned at strategic wildlife hubs at the refuge and are activated when they detect motion.
These two coyotes are grabbing a drink in a stream at Grizzly Gulch! Unlike wolves, coyotes hunt individually, in pairs, or in small family groups. These two being out together must mean they are in the same pack!
While this grizzly bear may be playing with a piece of wood in the stream, they also use this material to communicate with one another by scratching and rubbing it on trees to mark their territory.
Mother deer have a very strong bond with their babies despite being the smallest member of the North American deer family!
Did you know bobcats are very territorial creatures? They will mark their territory through scent marking with urine, feces, and anal gland secretions.
While they are one of the largest species of deer in the world, this elk is still on high alert and sniffing for predators nearby. Did you know their antlers can weigh up to 40 pounds of solid bone??
This red-tailed hawk lands on the perfect perching stick right above a stream! These hawks will perch while on the hunt for their next meal. We bet he’s looking for small rodents like mice or squirrels!
Make sure to build your terrarium with an adult!
Watch awesome videos of Chris and Martin adventuring with some of the world’s coolest creatures!
Watch this amazing video of two Grizzly bear cubs playing on top of some hay bales on Karl’s ranch!
Karl, our Grizzly Gulch Creaturefuge Manager, sees these magnificent creatures almost daily! Even Grizzly bears enjoy letting loose and having a little extra playtime throughout the day!
