The purpose of MOB is to provide up-to-date information on bird sightings from throughout Montana, promote birdwatching, provide a forum for birders of all levels to increase their knowledge and skill, and most important, increase our understanding of bird distribution within the state. Many of the sightings reported here become records in the Montana Bird Distribution database that is maintained by the Montana Natural Heritage Program. Unusual or interesting sightings are welcome, as are general birding discussions. Announcements about birding trips, field projects, meetings, etc., also are welcome. Many people from outside Montana belong to MOB, but the postings generally should be limited to bird species and events that occur within our state borders.
We also encourage members to share their bird photographs for artistic reasons, as well as to help with identification issues.
**PLEASE label all photos with the SPECIES NAME (when known), DATE TAKEN, and general LOCATION. Also, please be sure to state the location of the sightings you post. And, please put YOUR NAME at the end of each message you post.**
