The Ultimate Guide To Spotting Wildlife In Yellowstone

A couple weeks ago I vacationed in Yellowstone National Park with my family and had a blast sighting all kinds of wildlife. There are plenty of viewing opportunities there, and, fortunately, I had a very successful trip – I was able to see every type of animal that I looked for, a cougar being the exception. Definitely a trip to remember!

Not everyone who visits the park views as many species of animals as I did, though. You really have to be at the right places at the right times to enjoy all of the critters Yellowstone has to offer. If you are planning a trip to this park, I want to make sure you have a chance to see as much as I did or more. Thus, here is my ultimate guide to spotting wildlife in Yellowstone! I hope this is helpful to you 🙂

Birds:

There are SO many species of birds to be seen in Yellowstone! Some of the birds I saw (and could actually identify) included trumpeter swans, white pelicans, swallows, raven, osprey, a woodpecker, and sand hill cranes.

The best spots to bird watch are places near water, mud flats, meadows, and in areas with dead trees. You will be able to see many varieties as you drive throughout the park, but a few good places to stop would be Hayden Valley (to view water birds and birds of prey), Alum Creek (to view shorebirds feeding), along the river (to view eagles, pelicans, osprey, geese, kingfishers, etc.), and in any of the meadows (grey owls can sometimes be seen there in the evenings).

The tree swallow featured above, along with his many siblings and cousins, lives in a stump which is across from the Black Pool hot spring in the West Thumb Geyser Basin. Their home is just a couple feet from the walkway, so you can get especially close to these little guys. They are not one bit shy, are fun to watch as they fly back and forth from their stump non-stop, and were by far my favorite birds to photograph!

Ground Squirrels:

There are quite a few ground squirrels at the park.  Most that I saw were prairie dogs, unita ground squirrels, and chipmunks, but there are plenty of marmots to be seen as well.  The marmot in the photograph above is a yellow-bellied marmot.

Chipmunks are everywhere, so you’ll definitely be able to visit with Alvin, Simon, and Theodore on your trip no matter what part of the park you visit. If you are looking for marmots, though, they are almost always found near large rocks, anywhere from the valleys to the high elevations.  And the place to see prairie dogs is, well, the prairies 😉

Elk:

Elk are everywhere in Yellowstone National Park and, if you go in the spring, there are many babies to be seen. I saw quite a few babies, one of which had just been born and was learning to walk. I saw it, and three other calves, near the West Thumb Geyser Basin.

There is no need to recommend places to look for elk because you are sure to spot them crossing the road, walking along the hills, drinking from the lakes, and herds of them in the valleys. Just make sure you stay at least 25 yards away from them, even if you are close to your car. I saw so many people disobeying the signs during my visit (no joke, people were trying to approach full grown male elk and mothers with babies to take selfies!) which is just not wise. Elk can be very dangerous. They have damaged cars, so they are quite capable of killing you if you upset them. Please be safe! ????

Bison:

There are thousands of Bison roaming about Yellowstone National Park, including a great deal of babies in the spring. Just like the elk, they, too, wander all over the hills and throughout the valleys, and they even walk the roads causing traffic jams. That said, you shouldn’t have any problem seeing these big guys!

Though bison may be big, they are also quite agile and capable of charging at speeds of 30 mph. Each year, park visitors are injured because they approach these giant creatures too closely. Please protect yourself by staying at least 100 yards away from them.

bison yellowstoneyellowstonePronghorn Antelope:

Pronghorn antelope are another species that you are certain to see in the park. There are thousands of them which roam the same areas as the bison and elk.

Bighorn Sheep:

I saw seven Bighorn Sheep in the Lamar Valley. There are only a hundred of them in the park, and the best places to look for them year-round is in Gardiner Canyon and between Mammoth and the North East entrance. Or, if you are at Yellowstone in the summer, you also have a chance of spotting them on the slopes of Mount Washburn, along Dunraven pass.

Coyote:

I saw one Coyote running through sage in Hayden Valley, and my mother spotted a baby coyote just outside its den (I just missed it!) in the Lamar Valley as well. There is a healthy number of coyotes in the park, but, as Yellowstone is vast, spotting one is really hit-or-miss in Yellowstone. Your best bet, though, is to look for them in the evening in any open plains, valleys, or meadows.

Wolves:

There is a wolf den in the Lamar Valley at Slough Creek. If you go there in the early morning or late evening (I did both), you will have a good chance of seeing some of them walking around their den. And, if you visit during the spring, you will most likely see cubs as well. The wolves have made a home for themselves at a very far distance from where you can park, so seeing them with the naked eye is typically impossible. There are almost always, however, a lot of people with spotting scopes there in the early morning and early evening who love to point them out to newcomers, and most will let you look through their scopes.

Black Bear:

With the naked eye, I saw four different black bears – one of which was a cinnamon black bear. I spotted the first one at Dunraven Pass, saw the second and third near Tower Fall, and viewed the fourth in the Lamar Valley near the Lamar Valley River bridge.

The best places to look for black bears, like my family and I did, are in Hayden Valley, and in the Lamar Valley, especially near Tower Fall.  There have been many sightings there lately. Just make sure you carry pepper spray with you and maintain a 100 yards distance when looking at them. You don’t want to get hurt or scare any of the animals 🙂

Grizzly Bear:

With the naked eye, I saw one grizzly bear in Hayden Valley, and it was about 75 yards away! He was sitting in a sunny patch of the forest, feeding on an elk or deer. I watched him for over half an hour and got to see his eyes when he looked my way a couple times – so amazing!

The best places to see Grizzly are the same as the black bear, though there are less of them in the park. If you are lucky and see them (I hope you do!), just make sure you keep your distance from them. Grizzly bears are much more aggressive than black bears and can be very dangerous, so you definitely need to stay 100 yards away from them (unless you are with a ranger like I was).

Badger:

I saw one badger in the Lamar valley, and boy did it have an attitude! It was having a stand-off with a pronghorn antelope for a bit.  It was approximately 100 yards from me, in the valley southeast of the wolf den.

Badgers are extremely rare to spot, so I was very lucky to see him. I cannot really tell you where else to look for them, except that they like the treeless areas of meadows, prairies and scrub deserts. The Lamar valley is just such a place, so if you go there to look for wolves or bear, also study the ground and see if you can find one of them there!

Moose:

I was lucky to see one moose just as we were entering the park at the North East entrance. Unfortunately, I do not have any pictures of it show you. However, I DO have it on video and will be sharing that with you soon!

Moose are difficult to spot. In fact, they are even harder to view than the bears as there are less than 200 of them in Yellowstone, and they try to always stay well concealed. Your best bet to see them in this park is along Soda Butte Creek and the Louis River, or any other marshy areas near ponds and lakes that have lots of willow trees. If you really want to see a moose, though, the Grand Tetons is actually the better place to go. There are much more sightings of them there.

I am obsessed with bird watching (bit of an old-lady hobby, some would say, but whatever). I’m sure I’ll have the time of my life when I visit Yellowstone one day!

    Wow, so incredible! I love the idea of seeing these animals in the wild! I really hate to see them in captivity! Those baby elk and bison are just adorable! We spent time in Alaska last summer, but sadly didn’t see any moose. We did take a whale watch/glacier trip though and got to see so many whales, sea lions, puffins, otters, etc. which was really fun! 🙂 Also pinning this one for later. 🙂 XO – Alexandra

    While on one hand it’s super cool to have seen all this wildlife, the wimp in me may have peed my pants in fear haha. I went to Denali once and there were bears not too far from us. I get that they usually don’t want to get close to humans (unless a bear cub is involved), but you never know. One thing I wish I had seen was a Moose 🙂

    Haha don’t worry, I saw plenty of other people that got nervous too. I should warn you, though, that moose are actually more dangerous than bears typically. 😉 They’re super cute, but definitely keep a safe distance!

    I’m not sure where we could do this kind of wildlife spotting here in Ireland or the UK (in fact I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t even see any bears if we tried). But wow this place is just breathtaking and your photos are absolutely beautiful. You’ve captured these animals so well in their habitat x

    Your photographs never cease to amaze me! It looks like you spotted some incredible animals, especially the bears 🙂 Although they would probably scare me haha! You’ve made me really really wanna go to Yellowstone

    Aww thanks so much dear! 🙂 But come on, there’s no way you can be scared of bears! You’ve walked in water that could possibly have crocodiles in it!! You’re brave, trust me 😉

    What season would you say is best to visit to see the most animals? I’m thinking of going in June but it sounds like spring might be best?

    It really just depends on the year honestly. I saw a ton of wildlife in the early spring when I visited last year; however, this year I saw even more animals in June (mostly in the Tetons and not in yellowstone). And the weather seems to play a big part in that. The warmer it is (snow even comes there in July sometimes) the more wildlife you’ll usually see.

    Good luck with your trip!
