On Saturday August 31st,  Ron and Cheryl Farmer will lead our annual fall field trip to the Headwaters area.  We will  stop  at various sites in the Three Forks vicinity including Trident, Headwaters State Park, and Three Forks ponds; drive back roads, take short walks and see what we can find this time of year. We plan to be back at the MOR by early afternoon, so bringing a drink and snacks may be appropriate.

We will meet at the Museum of the Rockies at 7:45 AM for car pooling and an 8:00 departure.

Please contact  Cheryl & Ron Farmer  at 586-3987 for more information.

Hummingbird Show

Sacajawea Audubon members John and Tamie Parker have been hosts to a number of hummingbirds at their Hyalite Canyon home recently.  Over the last ten days there have been 4-7 Calliope Hummingbirds, 2-5 Rufous Hummingbirds, and a single adult Broad-tailed Hummingbird. The single adult Rufous chases all of the other hummers, of course, but it especially has it in for the Broad-tailed, chasing it relentlessly.  John sent these photos of two Rufous hummers.
