Madison Valley IBA Bird Count – June 28th

Madison Valley IBA Bird Survey – June 28th (Wednesday)
Its time for a thorough survey of the breeding birds using our IBA.  The great numbers of waterfowl will be gone and instead we will be challenged to count up all the warblers, flycatchers, swallows, orioles, grosbeaks, raptors, and Sandhill Cranes (101 seen on one year's June count).  This count will take place on Wednesday, June 28th, to avoid the weekend recreationists on Ennis Lake.  Since daylight comes early now, we will be meeting earlier too.  We will meet at the Ennis Pharmacy Café and be ready to head out for the survey at 7 am   I believe the Café opens at 6:30 if you want a quick breakfast there.
If you can help, please email Paulette at bigskyepples@msn.com or call 580-6186.
Also, keep in mind that there will be a survey of the Headwaters IBA on Sunday, June 18th.  Contact Martha Collins atmarthacoll@msn.com to get involved in that count.
