Despite having "hawk" as part of their name, Common Nighthawks are not related to raptors and do not possess the raptor's sharp flesh-tearing beaks and piercing talons.
Bison change the way spring happens across Yellowstone National Park’s vast grasslands, a situation lead bison biologist Chris Geremia will discuss during an April 1 online talk for the Draper Natural History Museum Lunchtime Expedition at noon.

For 30,000 years pronghorns have migrated in the fall and winter as they sought out the best places to find nutritious food, give birth, raise their fawns and survive brutal cold, snow, drought and predators.
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has developed a new strategy addressing wildlife movement and migration.
The life-or-death journey made by mule deer during the second-longest big game migration in North America came down to their ability to squeeze through a fence.
Montana State University researchers have set out to understand why some young adults choose to move to rural parts of the state, bucking a perceived trend of moving away from those rural areas.
One of the most popular bucket-list trips is undoubtedly witnessing East Africa’s Great Migration. While there are tons of safari options throughout the world, this is an incredible opportunity to see almost two million wildebeest, along with zebras and gazelles, begin their journey north from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara in Kenya in search of water and better grazing grounds. The roughly 1,800-mile trek moves in a circular, clockwise route, and travelers can witness animals throughout the year, though the best chance of spotting wildebeest crossing a river is in August and September. The treacherous journey is also filled with predators such as crocodiles and lions, making for dramatic and emotional encounters. Hire a professional guide or book a tour group to ensure wildlife spotting, and we recommend investing in quality binoculars and camera gear.
Chinese paddlefish are believed to now be extinct.
The sight of tens of thousands of white geese erupting from the water is enough to bring dedicated birders and casual observers to Freezout Lake Wildlife Management Area each March and April.
The months of August, September and October are the time when songbirds begin to fly south to warmer climates and more available food. Many songbirds only fly to southern states like Arizona, others migrate to Central America and still others migrate deep into South America to the lowest parts of Argentina. The farthest south I have birded in the Western Hemisphere is the northeast quarter of Ecuador. I did that in February 2016 and I saw many birds I was familiar with as summer breeders here in the Upper Clark Fork valley.
A study led by Blake Lowrey found notable distinctions in the migrations of different types of bighorn sheep herds. Native herds that have never been removed from historic ranges retain more diverse migratory patterns than restored and augmented herds.
As the Earth’s climate changes, the roughly 20,000 migrating elk that summer in the high country in and around Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks seem ready to adapt, based on a recent study of 400 GPS-collared animals.
