Details"State of Montana Birds"  _presented by Amy Seaman, Conservation Program Manager for Montana Audubon.  Montana’s habitat is diverse and filled with 433 species of birds.  From Montana’s Rocky Mountain peaks in the West to its Great Plains in the East, Montana Audubon is working to conserve these natural ecosystems and safeguard its biological diversity.  Join Amy Seaman, Conservation Program Manager, of Montana Audubon, as she gives us a glimpse of the State of Montana Birds and bird conservation work across Montana.  Including, the citizen science efforts focusing on the Long-billed Curlew Initiative, Black Swift research in Glacier, and the annual Breeding Bird Surveys.
