Western Bluebirds

March 22

This shizzle is about to get real. Spring is swinging in and birds are arriving. I’ve been scouring locally and in the Flathead and Mission Valleys, adding 9 species since March 9. That rate is about to change with a visit to Freezout Lake this weekend along with a host of possibilities along the way and on the return.

Made a wonderful 3 dip trip to the Flathead: Glaucous-winged Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull and Iceland Gull (Thayers). Those were fun dips though, wading through the ankle deep mud on the North shore of Flathead Lake in a chilly drizzle, even taking a fall onto my ass and ending up coated!

It’s also time to find….Boreal Owl! Stay tuned!

    What a thrill and joy to be rewarded with these beautiful sightings.
    Hope you remain safe and on your dry feet.
