The 24th annual Kalispell Christmas Bird Count will be held on Sunday, January 1, 2023. Centered at Reserve Street and Highway 93, the 15-mi diameter count circle includes Evergreen, much of the Flathead River corridor, Owen Sowerwine, Happy Valley, Herron Park, Egan Slough, Lonepine State Park and the Kuhn’s Wildlife Area.
A popular New Year’s tradition, this count typically depends on veteran group leaders to scour their areas, and we are always looking for additional participants to join in to help us gain a better understanding of our early winter bird populations. The count averages 75-80 species each year and has tallied a total of 131 species. The circle includes the homes, bird feeders, and favorite birding spots of many of our Audubon members! The day will end with a gathering and final bird tally at Brannigan’s Pub at 5 PM (optional).
If you are interested in participating, contact Dr. Pete Fisher at email@example.com.
