Oh Gyrfalcon! How you elude me. Several birding days, a few thousand miles and no success in observing this species. The right places and the right times don’t always add up to success.
That said, there has been some wonderful birding and of course the vistas of Montana never cease to amaze. I’ve added a few new birds for the year including a surprise Varied Thrush in Greenough Park in Missoula and Virginia Rail in the lower Mission Valley.
