A series of guided hikes are scheduled on the Whitefish Trail this season. The next outing in the series is a guided bird hike on Wednesday, June 4th at 6:00 p.m. on the Swift Creek portion of the Whitefish Trail.
Bruce Tannehill of Flathead Audubon will lead a walk through sections of old growth forest overlooking Swift Creek followed by a visit to Lazy Creek, a known birding hotspot. Come learn bird songs and meet the sparrows, woodpeckers, warblers and nuthatches that live in the area. Bruce, treasurer of the local Audubon Chapter, and his wife, Gail Cleveland, are avid birders who know their local birds intimately.
Both novice and experienced birders and families are welcome on this outing. Bring your binoculars and sturdy hiking shoes. Spotting scopes will be available to see the exquisite details of birds within view.
Meet at Swift Creek Trailhead at 6:00 p.m. or at Depot Park near the Whitefish Library at 5:30 p.m. to carpool to the trailhead.
