Bird songs are a welcome sign of warmer weather and a source of musical delight. They also tell us who flying and flitting about! Learning to identify birds by song and call is a wonderful way to enrich your outdoor experience.

This class is appropriate for all birding levels from the beginning birder to those who are a bit more experienced and would like to concentrate on song identification skills. We will spend the morning walking and listening to a number of species along the Clark Fork River and on the Kim Williams Trail through Hellgate Canyon.


Birder and naturalist Brian Williams worked at the King Ranch in Texas leading bird tours and instructed the Montana Master Naturalist Class with the Montana Natural History Center and the Glacier Institute for 10 years. He now works as a fourth grade teacher at Hawthorne Elementary School.
