The Big Horn Audubon Society hosted it's monthly Birding at the Brinton event for local birders on Saturday, June 20. Roughly 20 attendees joined the guides in touring the Brinton grounds to observe, both visually and audibly, the birds that are spread throughout the area. Birds spotted during the event included swallows, hawks, ospreys and hummingbirds. The grounds around the Brinton Museum that are used are designated as an Important Bird Area in hopes of protecting the habitat and environment for the birds. The local chapter is hoping to create a new IBA in a wetland area in Buffalo.
