Red, White & Blue

During a rainstorm in Grasslands National Park, this red bison calve huddles close to mom under a half-blue sky. When the fire works are done and the grill cools down, check out our new live cams including the Bison Calving Cam here!

Did You Know? The American Buffalo is just another name for Bison. According to some estimates, there may have been 50 million to 60 million bison when Columbus arrived in North America. “Habitat loss and unregulated shooting reduced the population to just 1,091 by 1889,’ (Defenders). Today, thanks to conservation efforts, there are about half a million bison across North America.

You can see their wooly ways here.
