Join FAS Conservation Educator and long-time teaching naturalist Denny Olson for a winter hike in the Owen Sowerwine Natural Area on January 15 from 9AM- 12 PM (weather permitting). Winter birds, bird songs, tracking, botanizing, and seat-of-the-pants interpretation will be the unstructured itinerary. This is one of the best spots in the area to see Pileated and other woodpeckers, many kinds of chickadees, Bohemian and Cedar waxwings in flocks of thousands, Pine Grosbeaks, Townsend’s Solitaires–and there is always an unexpected bird!  We will not just be identifying birds but will include lots of natural history lore, which is Denny’s trademark.  Dress warmly, bring binoculars and snow boots, and check with us on the need for snowshoes, if the snow is deep.

Call Denny at 406 249-3987 or e-mail denny@flatheadaudubon.org to sign up and get directions. Class size is limited.  Social distancing will be required.

The field trip is free and open to the public.
