Madison Valley IBA Bird Survey – March 15th

Ennis Lake

Ennis Lake

March 15th (Sunday) we will conduct our first IBA survey of the year in the Madison Valley.  This has been a most unusual winter and during the extended warm spell in the middle of February Ennis Lake opened up and became almost ice free.  It will be interesting to see how the mild open winter affects our bird counts.  Raptors should be present in good numbers, Ennis Lake should be attracting many swans as well as a variety of ducks, and there should be some early songbird migrants back in the valley.

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 noon or 1 pm.

FYI:  Other IBA survey dates for the year will include:

  • Madison Valley IBA survey - April 25
  • Headwaters IBA survey - May 2
  • Headwaters IBA survey - June 17
  • Madison Valley IBA survey - June 24
