Saturday, October 24th

Meet at 7:45 am at the Museum of the Rockies

Carpool and depart at 8:00 am

This should be near the peak time for migrating waterfowl.  Ennis Lake is one of the premiere staging areas for migrating waterfowl in southwestern Montana.  Thousands of ducks can be spread across the lake on any given day.  As is typical with high concentrations of birds, there is always the possibility of a rarity being found.   Bring a lunch as we’ll be out until at least mid-afternoon.  Also, remember to bring plenty of warm clothes as it will likely be cold and windy.  Limit 16 people.  For more information and to make reservations, call John Parker at 586-5863 or email at birdsightings@sacajaweaaudubon.org.
