From Buffalo Field Campaign’s weekly newsletter:

“Late last week BFC patrols saw the first buffalo calf of the season! Mom and calf appeared to be doing fine, and were spotted along the Madison River in the Hebgen Basin, west of Yellowstone National Park. The next generation of wild buffalo is coming! While snow still covers a lot of ground, spring has truly arrived to the Hebgen Basin. Osprey, blue birds, Sandhill cranes and pelicans have returned, and the first sign of grizzly bears has been spotted. A couple hundred buffalo have been migrating along the Madison River toward their calving grounds on the Horse Butte Peninsula. Save for the dangers of having to cross the highways, all has been blessedly quiet on the western front.”
