Glacier Christmas Bird Count

Glacier Christmas Bird Count 2014

It’s that time of the year for Audubon’s 115th annual Christmas Bird Count. As if I needed any excuse to get out in Glacier National Park on a sunny day…. citizen science is always a great excuse. While the snow was really crunchy making it hard to hear and easy to scare birds away, we still […]

September Raptor Count

On a crisp morning, late in September, I rolled up to the humble building housing the fine folks that run the Citizen Science program in Glacier. We were heading on up to Swiftcurrent Pass for the annual raptor count during the fall raptor migration that starts in September and continues into November. As if I needed […]
