Northeast Bozeman Birds
Had a few minutes to kill yesterday while a pair of snow tires were getting studded.
An American Dipper was seen just downstream of the L Street bridge over the East Gallatin after not finding it at the Tamarack St bridge over Bozeman Creek. A Green-wing Teal drake and several pairs of Mallards were observed in the wetlands west of Glen Lake - near the vehicle turnaround on the trail to the Cherry River Fishing Access Site.
Very few birds were on Glen Lake (East Gallatin Recreation Area) itself, but I did detect a female Red-breasted Merganser and a couple of American Coots.
Right now a Brown Creeper is making repeat visits to forage on the ground under my seed feeders.
