Great blue heron. (Keith Hammer photos)
With an arctic front blowing in Saturday, March 11, two Swan Rangers were glad they went looking for birds on Friday!
They went looking for long-billed curlews along county roads north of Charlo, MT, but saw a lot of other birds along the way!

While the Swan Ranger Saturday group outings remain suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will try to get a report out most weeks with items of interest to folks trying to get outside for some "social distancing" and spirit-calming fresh air.
You can see why this cormorant is called double-crested . . .
. . . when he shows off his fancy hairdo!
This was the first sighting of greater white-fronted geese for Rangers Keith and Pam . . .
. . . until they turned their car around and saw them again on the way back!
It wouldn't be a Swan Ranger outing without swans . . .
. . . tundra swans in this case!
These cinnamon teal and . . .
. . . northern shoveler share the same address . . .
The Rangers saw quite a few common snipe . . .
. . . western meadow larks and . . .
. . . redtail hawks . . .
. . . but only a few long-billed curlews, and then at a great distance! Can you find this one in the center of the photo?
