May 19th Field Trip – Fish Technology Center (aka Fish Hatchery)

American Dipper Photo by J. Harris

May 19th:  Fish Technology Center

Leader:  Lou Ann Harris  406-600-3585        (4 hour trip; easy walking)

Situated where Bridger Creek flows past the base of Drinking Horse Mountain, this small area is a prime birding spot.  Several species of warblers, hummingbirds, flycatchers nest in the willows and dogwood along the stream, and the drier slopes of the adjoining hillsides.  This is also one of the best places around to look for American Dippers.  15 person limit.

Participants in all trips will meet at the front parking lot of the Museum of the Rockies at 6:45 a.m. and depart at 7:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted.  Car pools will be arranged at the museum; an offer to help with gas to the person driving is always appreciated but not mandatory.  Dress for the weather; good footwear is a must as field trip conditions are not always dry.  Turn off your cell phones and keep unnecessary conversations to a minimum.  Some field trips are limited to a certain number of participants.  Contact the trip leader for more details about any trip, and to sign up for the trip.  We encourage beginning birders to participate.  Come have a good time and learn something new.
