The 44th annual Bigfork Christmas Bird Count will be held Saturday, December 16th. First
established in 1974, the Bigfork count circle is centered at the “Little Brown Church” north of Bigfork,
and includes >30 miles of the Swan and Flathead Rivers, the north end of Flathead Lake, and many
varied upland habitats. We became the first count in the state to report 90 species (in 2011), and always
find a diverse and surprising mix of birds, with nearly 150 species over the history of the count. This count
typically depends on veteran group leaders to scour their usual areas, and we are always looking for additional
participants. We will begin preparation for the count at the December 11th general meeting, and finalize
most of the groups before the count day. Also, there will be a gathering at 8 AM on count morning at
the Flathead Brewing Company parking lot at 116 Holt Drive, Bigfork, to make any last minute arrangements
and will gather again at 5 PM to review the group’s results. Contact Craig at asoleado2003@yahoo.com
or 406-890-1629.
