Summary of Birding Tour Observations
The birding tours for the Creston Valley Bird Fest, which occurred on May 10-11, were well attended.
They were conducted on the western side of the Creston valley, mainly at these locations:
A total of 108 species were seen. Seven of these are rare for the valley or for May. Several of these species were observed on Kootenay River Road in a flooded cattle pasture. In 2013, birding tour observers saw 91 species, but they didn’t see any of the rare birds seen in 2014.
The table at the link below summarizes the observations for the 11 birding tours conducted on May 10 and 11, 2014. The species list and abundance estimates were derived from Creston Valley Birds: When and Where to Find Them by Linda M. Van Damme (2012).
Bold: Species are Abundant or Common
Not bold: Species are uncommon
Red: Species are rare for the valley or season
