Come join FAS at the Tally Lake Campground on 5/31/19 – 6/2/19 for an extraordinary two days of birding and relaxing. The pavilion campsite at the campground has been reserved for us. We will be focusing on bird identification, birding by ear, and photography. This is an ideal time of year to find a wide variety of migrant and resident birds; most notable is that all of the warbler species which can be found in NW Montana are found here. 

Several of our expert birders will be available to lead us around the campground. Plenty of other activities can be enjoyed at Tally Lake as well. 

There is a covered pavilion for rainy weather.  We would like to have an optional potluck meal Saturday evening around 6 PM. Please bring something to share if you want to join in. All other meals are up to you.  Someone will show up Friday afternoon to get a fire going, scout the area, and start creating a bird list.  

Please bring FIREWOOD if you have it, or tools to harvest it from the woods.  Cost of camping is FREE, courtesy of FAS. Just tell them at the gate that you are with Flathead Audubon at the pavilion. Note that there is little or no cell phone service at Tally Lake.  

Contact Jill or Mike Fanning at 862-8070 or shrdlu@centurytel.net if you have questions about this outstanding adventure into the world of birds.
