Elk Bugling

A few weeks ago we went up to Rocky Mountain National Park with JT, BlueEyes, and a new friend T to hear the elk bugling (and to celebrate JT's birthday!). The bugling is the sound the boys make when they're, er, looking for a girlfriend. We stayed out there several hours til long after dark listening to the fascinating, and often funny, sounds. We were also treated to an amazing star show on a crystal clear (and cold!) night.

Here's a little clip of the bugling. Also heard are human giggling, and a &@%*!# diesel truck.

By the way, this is the first time I've ever posted my own video. Kinda cool.
