June 1st Field Trip – Mission Creek

Long-billed Curlew

Long-billed Curlew

Leader:  Robin Wolcott,  581-5418

(Until mid-afternoon; bring a lunch)

After leaving Bozeman, we will meet at Albertson’s parking lot in Livingston at 7:30 a.m. and then leave from there at 7:45 a.m. Car-pooling is essential.

In the rolling prairie we may find McCown’s Longspur, Long-billed Curlew, and raptors.  In the Mission Creek Valley we will watch for Wild Turkeys, listen for warblers, and watch for residents of the spruce forest. On the return trip we may see Lark Buntings. We have seen over 110 species along this route, including Sprague’s Pipit, Upland Sandpiper, and Broad-winged Hawk.

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.
