FREEZOUT LAKE AND THE SNOW GEESE MIGRATION

March 23 - March 24

 Every spring the Snow Geese move from their California wintering grounds to their arctic nesting areas along with thousands of other waterfowl. There is nothing like Snow Geese and the Rocky Mountains at Freezeout Lake near Choteau.  The group will meet on Saturday morning, March 23 at 10 AM to caravan/carpool to Choteau and arrive in time for the afternoon “fly-out.” After spending a night in Choteau, the group will head back out just before daybreak to watch the “mass ascension” of geese from the ponds of Freezout. After the morning’s birding, the group will head home in the early afternoon arriving in Kalispell around 5 PM on Sunday. Bob Lee will provide a suggested schedule and route, and will be in the front of the group. Participants may choose to pursue the geese on their own as much or as little as the weather and the birds allow. Please make your own arrangements for lodging; primitive camping is available at Freezout WMA. Motel options include the Stage Stop (406-466-5900), Gunther (406-466-5444) and Big Sky (406-466-5318). Make your reservations early as these hotels will likely fill up. For more information, including the meeting location, contact Bob Lee at 270-0371 or RML3@centurytel.net.
