Birding the Danny On Trail in Whitefish

June 26 @ 10:00 AM 2:00 PM

Join Jim Rogers for a morning of hiking and birding in Whitefish. 

 Our field trip begins on the summit of Big Mountain at the Danny On trailhead and, after walking 4 miles down and descending 2350 feet of elevation, ends in the village area of the Whitefish Mountain Resort.  Participants must find their own way up to the summit (i.e. walking or taking the lift up).

Plan to start mid-morning since the lift starts about 10 am.

Expect to see a variety of beautiful songbirds including Warbling and Cassin’s vireos, Lazuli bunting, Ruby-crowned kinglet, Brown creeper, MacGillivray’s and Yellow-rumped warblers, Western tanager, Olive-sided flycatcher, Fox sparrow, Pacific wren, Swainson’s, Varied, and Hermit thrushes, Cassin’s finch, and Pine grosbeak.  

Bring binoculars, water, and snacks.  Dress for the weather, wear sturdy hiking shoes, and bring appropriate layers for the conditions.  Specific start times will be discussed at time of sign up.

Sign up is required and space is limited to 10 people for each walk. To sign up, contact Jim at  jmrogers2007@gmail.com or call or text: 406-871-1964
