Flathead Audubon’s expert birder Craig Hohenberger will be leading an East Flathead Valley Early Migration bird field trip on Sunday, March 23 from 9 am to noon.
Explore a wide variety of waterfowl, eagles, raptors, and other early migrants on a relatively new wetland area near Creston, along Riverside Road, Flathead River, and around Egan and Half-Moon Sloughs.
Flooded fields, sloughs, and open water will make it possible to observe hundreds of swans including both tundra and trumpeters, snow and Canada geese, a wide variety of diving and dabbling ducks including Eurasian wigeon, early song-birds, and other interesting birds and wildlife.
Meet to carpool at 9 am at the south end of the Creston Fire Hall parking lot located in Creston along Highway 35 and the north end of Riverside Road. We will return about noon.
Bring binoculars and/or spotting scopes, snacks and dress for the weather. For further information and to sign up, call Gael Bissell at 261-2255. All ages and birding abilities are welcome.
