10:00 AM
Swan River School
Description:
Explore the Bigfork, Swan River and surrounding area on Sunday, February 19, 2017, 10 AM-1:30 PM. Join the Flathead Audubon Society for an exciting morning of birding and learning about our winter avian residents in the Bigfork/Swan River area. We will be counting wintering songbirds at local feeders such as 3 chickadee species, Golden-crowned Kinglets, and many other species. Exploring the river corridor and surrounding fields, we hope to see Trumpeter Swans, many duck species, Bald Eagles and maybe even a Pygmy Owl. This is an excellent outing for families with children as well birders of all ages. Dress warmly, bring binoculars and/or spotting scopes. Meet at 10 AM at the east end of Swan River School main parking area. Contact Kathy Ross at mtkat67@gmail.com or 406-837-3837 to sign up. This field trip is free and open to the public.
