Portneuf Valley Audubon to meet March 21; Snow Goose Chase set for March 23

March 19, 2019

POCATELLO – David Bush will make the presentation “Grays Lake Swans” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 21 at the Portneuf Audubon Society meeting in the Marshall Public Library Community Room.

Idaho State University master’s recipient Bush will talk about his studies on Trumpeter Swans. The title of his research thesis, which was supported by Portneuf Valley Audubon Society, is “Incubation Behavior and Genetic Attributes of Trumpeter Swans Restored to Grays Lake Wildlife Refuge.”

Bush will allow plenty of time for questions and discussion; please join us.

Then on Saturday, March 23, the PVAS’s field trip will be the annual Snow Goose Chase when participants will look around American Falls Reservoir and possibly areas to the north for big flocks of Snow Geese. There will be a good chance to see Trumpeter Swans, Sandhill Cranes and many migrating waterfowl.

To participate in the field trip, plan to meet and carpool at 8 a.m. near the bison statue in the Idaho State University Student Union parking lot. Dress for the weather and bring a friend and some snacks. Participants should be back in Pocatello around noon.
