Who doesn’t love bluebirds? The answer is to not miss our February 10th program at 7:00 p.m. featuring Sacajawea Audubon’s own Mountain Bluebird Trail citizen science project. Chapter bluebird trail monitors Lou Ann Harris, Janne Hayward and Diane Gresham will present a fascinating talk on the life cycle of the Mountain Bluebird in Montana and the history of the bluebird trail project in the Gallatin Valley. Lots of great photos will be shown of bluebirds in all stages of their lives. Mountain Bluebird males will be returning in early March, so this is a perfect time to bone up on your knowledge of these beautiful and gentle birds.
Lou Ann Harris is a longtime Audubon member and currently serves as Vice President on both Sacajawea Audubon and Montana Audubon boards. She became involved in the bluebird trail through Mary Geis in 2007 and received her Master Banding License in 2010.
Janne Hayward is also an Audubon member and longtime conservationist in Bozeman. She became involved with the bluebird trail through Lou Ann in 2010, and is now training to become a licensed bird bander. She monitors 50 boxes on Dry Creek/Pass Creek Roads.
Diane Gresham joined Sacajawea Audubon in 2006 and has been very involved with chapter activities. She has served on the Board of Directors and currently is the chapter Hospitality Chair. Diane has been assisting Lou Ann on the bluebird trail since 2007 and logs all the data in addition to training to become a licensed bander.
