View of Flathead Lake and the Swan Range from Stoner Creek by Joel Vignere!
Swan Rangers enjoyed the migration of birds and other delights in the week leading up to Spring Equinox!
Click here or scroll down for the Rangers' photos and details!
The ice is melting, the lake is rising, and birds are arriving, as shown in Joel Vignere's lead photo.
Skip Via reported seeing pintails, mallards, widgeons, geese, and swans - and shows us they aren't necessarily waiting until the ice is gone to migrate!
Pat Jaquith provides us a close-up of some of those Northern pintails!
Keith Hammer doesn't know his ducks very well, but he thinks this just might be a Golden eye!
Pat Jaquith shows us a couple birds in the bush are worth a couple of photos, starting with this Hoary redpoll and . . .
. . . this White-winged crossbill!
Ruth quist caught one half of a sun dog!
Keith Hammer came across reminders to never give up . . .
. . . to know a welcoming spot when you see it . . .
. . . and to look for the best in nature and people!
