Birders will gather at the Great Falls (Montana) Holiday Inn on June 12-14 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Mountain Bluebird Trails and to visit area bluebird nesting trails.
A bluebird trail is a series of nesting boxes established in bluebird country. Bluebirds are cavity dwellers, and bird species introduced by European settlers have taken over the much of the nesting opportunities from bluebirds. Bluebird nesting trails are made in order to create artificial cavities for them to nest in.
Among the scheduled field trips, Great Falls birder and photographer Liz Larcom will lead a birding trip to Benton Lake National Wildlife Refuge.
Early arrivals can attend a digital photography seminar Friday morning at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, located right next to Giant Springs State Park.
