“Swifting” Up High in Glacier Park
Last Chance Audubon Society Program
April 4, 2017, 7:00PM
Montana WILD, 2668 Broadwater Ave., Helena
Join Amy Seaman, Conservation Program Manager for Montana Audubon, as she describes her field work surveying for elusive Black Swifts in Glacier National Park.
She will discuss the bird’s distribution, unique nesting behavior, and its conservation status in Montana. The state’s surveys include Montana Audubon efforts over the last three years in Glacier Park which is home to the majority of swift colonies that we are aware of in Montana. Amy will share what has been learned about how to survey in remote backcountry, photos of beautiful waterfalls, interesting facts, and plenty of speculation about what we know about “the coolest bird”.
