Madison Valley IBA Bird Census – April 26th

LongbilledCurlewHi Birders,

The birds are coming back!!  April 26th (Saturday) we will conduct a bird survey on the Madison Valley IBA.  This is an exciting time in the valley with up to 20 species of waterfowl on Ennis Lake, 52 Common Loons counted last year, large flocks of avocet and of course lots of Sandhill Crane and Long-billed Curlews around.  If you can help, email Paulette at or call 580-6186.  We will meet at the Ennis Pharmacy Café in Ennis by 7:45 am.  Come early if you would like to eat breakfast there.  We should be finished by 1 pm.

Please note that there will also be a Headwaters IBA survey the next Saturday, May 3rd.  Martha Collins will be sending out an email soon with all the details.  So as you plan your weeks ahead consider joining one, or both, of the surveys.  It will be fun to be out birding as we gather important data to track long term trends on the IBAs.

Yours for the birds,
