This youngster isn’t big on waiting for the hay to come to him. Once we arrive, he jumps on the trailer and rides while I drive. Craig throws hay off of the front of the bale while the youngster snacks on the back. It’s a buffalo sort of “Drive In Dining.”
Merry Christmas, from all of us at Bison Quest (and no, this isn’t photo shopped!) December 25, 2013

Oh Come All Ye Faceful…
And then comes the cautious coyote… February 21, 2013
While some critters come right in to the camera, others make really sure that it’s okay first. This series shows the cautious canid starting in, then going back out, coming in again and then going back out, over and over. It took two nights before he finally actually ate at the bones. Even then, he would eat, then back off, then carefully come back in. This is how a little 20 lb canid lives in a hostile world.
As we continue to get bigger critters – add a golden eagle! February 4, 2013
Another young ‘un, this immature golden is happy to find such a handy snack! First, he checks it over….
Then he takes a bite. What a deal for a growing youngster.
First Magpies, then Ravens and – a Goshawk on carrion! February 1, 2013
While carrion isn’t the usual for Goshawks, they’re certainly not above taking advantage of fresh goodies. And when you’re a young of the year, now on your own, you are happy to take what you can get!
Enter the Ravens. Getting bigger. January 30, 2013
While the magpies are often the ones to find the goodies, the ravens are no slouches and are good at spotting food from above. And if they see a flock of magpies poring over something on the ground, then they know there’s food around.
