Grand Teton National Park.

I arrived at Grand Teton bright and early on Tuesday morning hoping to nab a good campsite at one of the campgrounds in the park.  My brother and nephew were flying into Jackson Hole that evening and I needed to have everything set up by the time they arrived.  I finally found something decent at the Signal Mountain campground and spent the rest of the day looking for animals.

I found a group of pelicans along Oxbow Bend near Jackson Lake Junction.

They looked great in front of the mountains.

A couple of wigeons flew in...


I headed south along the main road and stopped for some pictures of the Tetons..


Oh and this cowboy of course...


Next I drove down to Mormon Row... Found this swallow:


I believe it's a Northern Rough-winged Swallow.

Further down the road I came across some bison...

This young one was having trouble keeping up as mom kept walking across the field..


I headed back down the road to see what I could find..  I stopped in a shady spot and watched some baby robins begging...


After a minute I noticed some bright blue mixed in with the robins...

A Mountain Bluebird!  Such a pretty bird...

Back at the beginning of the road are some abandoned buildings including a couple of small houses and barns..


There were lots of creatures around.  Cliff swallows love the eaves...


I also found what I think is a female Mountain Bluebird (and several more males). 


I definitely saw some birds I just wasn't sure about:

Yet another mystery flycatcher...

This next one I'm guessing is a Brewer's Sparrow?
Though now that I'm staring at it, the bill might be too light.  Ack there are too many sparrows.

I watched this magpie for a bit... I'm not sure what he was doing here..


He moved on after awhile to check out some puddles.


These gorgeous moth-things were all over the muddy areas..


After leaving here it was almost time to head to the airport.  Luckily I left early because a small crowd was gathered on the bridge at Moose Junction over the Snake River...

I guess the junction was named for a reason!  My first moose!  It was the perfect ending to the day...
