Christmas is coming
Don’t panic just yet
Do think about gifts
Your gift getters get

A perfect gift have we
For your nature lover
This crowning achievement
They’ve yet to discover

With stories of mammals
And birds that are flocking
A perfect gift it makes
But too large for a stocking

It’s packed full of info
From flowers to deer
You’ll learn something new
Each day of the year

Buy for the photos
For our Audubon chapter
Get it for the info
Snag it for the raptor

So go ahead and buy one
Buy one, two, or three
Your loved ones will love you
And (to be perfectly honest), so will we!

You can own this fine calendar by purchasing one at our general meetings, online at our the Flathead Audubon Store, or by visiting many of our brick-and-mortar supporters which can be found here.

White-tailed Ptarmigan

By Mary Nelesen For the past five summers, I have searched in vain for a glimpse of a White-tailed Ptarmigan. This past summer, I was fortunate and saw a flock of them just by chance. Myfirst experience in seeing this elusive bird was while walking along the Highline Trail at Logan Pass in Glacier National […]

Tree Swallow

Tree Swallow

By Lisa Bate It usually happens sometime in March. I am outside working on the farm when I hear what sounds like bubbling water flying overhead. Then I just smile knowing that the tree swallows (Tachycineta bicolor) have returned from their wintering grounds and with them, have brought the real beginning of spring to northwest […]

Spruce Grouse

By Kathy Ross Imagine the shock of hearing an engine start up in the middle of a beautiful forest a long distance from road or apparent civilization. I know I was truly puzzled and a little disconcerted by this mechanical sound in the quiet of a peaceful woodland setting, only to discover it was an […]

REDSTART

American Redstart

By Lewis Young Although a member of the large family of wood-warblers that are sometimes difficult to tell apart, American Redstarts have distinctive color patterns and behavioral traits that make them relatively easy to identify. Adult males are glossy black with bright orange patches on wings, tail and sides. The belly and under the tail […]
