Not long ago, I spent a fun Saturday at Freezeout Lake with my bird nerd buddies, The Berds, and wrote about it here.  This morning I found out that three of them made a very rare bird sighting at the Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge down near Stevensville, Montana.  They saw … wait for it … drum roll please …

A gray crowned rosy finch!

I can’t get the PDF to insert as a picture into this post, but click the link to see the lovely little poster that the folks at Lee Metcalf made to commemorate the rare sighting.

So proud of my Berds.  We’ve come a long way, baby.  Though we’re mostly still here in Montana.  Thank goodness!
