Do you feed birds during the cold winter months or know of a friend or family member who does? If so, Montana Audubon invites you to contribute to a large Rosy-Finch study spanning eight Western states!

Rosy-Finches breed around cliffs and snowfields in our highest elevations during the summer and are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Before devising effective conservation strategies for these remarkable, hardy little birds, we first need to better understand their populations. 

This is where you come in! Once again, we are partnering with Sageland Collaborative on the survey. We are looking for volunteer participants who will watch a feeder as little as 20 minutes, once a month, December to April, and report observations of Rosy-Finches.

To participate, contact our Avian Specialist Bo Crees ( or Volunteer Coordinator Cassidy Dinkel (
