Firebrand Pass Trailhead Birding

June 9 @ 7:30 AM 12:30 PM

Summer Songbirds and Native Flora abound at the Firebrand Pass Trailhead area in Glacier Park. Join Steve Gniadek (Flathead Audubon) and Kathy Ross (MNPS/FAS) in the appreciation of our returning migratory birds. We will explore the wetlands, mixed forest, and grassland habitats near the trailhead for waterfowl and many species of neotropical migrants including Olive-sided and Willow Flycatchers, Marsh Wren, Veery, White-crowned and Lincoln’s Sparrows, Northern Waterthrush, MacGillivray’s, Yellow, and Wilson’s Warblers, Black-headed Grosbeak along with many other summer avian visitors. Also enjoy the native wildflowers that color the contrasting wetland/rocky windswept habitat of this area. Contact Kathy at mtkat67@gmail.com to sign up and for meeting place and carpooling. Trip is limited to 12 participants. Dress appropriately for possible windy, chilly spring weather and bring snacks and water. Easy to moderate trail walking 3-4 miles round trip.
