THE GREAT BACKYARD BIRD COUNT
February 17, 2019 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PMfree
Here is a field trip for kids and all ages. Explore the Bigfork and Swan River area on Sunday, February 17, 2019 from 10am-1pm. Join us for an exciting morning of birding and learning about our winter avian residents in this area. We will visit local feeders to identify and count wintering songbirds as part of a yearly nation-wide Citizen Scientist project. Expect to see three species of chickadees, Golden-crowned Kinglets, along with many other feeder surprises. Exploring the river corridor by car we hope to see Trumpeter Swans, Bald Eagles and perhaps resident Pygmy Owls. This is an excellent outing for families with children as well as bird lovers of all ages. Minimal walking to some viewing areas and short periods of standing. Dress warmly, bring binoculars and/or spotting scopes. Contact Kathy Ross for information and to sign up, 406-837-3837 or firstname.lastname@example.org
