Spring Waterfowl at StoneHouse

Duck Lake – On The Central Flyway

The StoneHouse sits on a small ridge overlooking Glacier Park to the West and Duck Lake to the East on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in northwest Montana. One of the main reasons for picking this particular location to build the StoneHouse wasn’t just the amazing views of the Park and world-class fishing, but the fact that it is on the Central Flyway for many waterfowl species. In the Spring, it is nesting ground for many species and a resting point for others before they continue on to destinations further north. As  soon as the snow begins to give way to prairie grass and the ice begins to melt from the reservation lakes, usually sometime in late march, it’s a great time to view a wide variety of waterfowl. I have spent many days just sitting on the front porch of the StoneHouse overlooking the Duck’s Head and watching and listening to the echoing calls of Geese, Swans, Sandhill Cranes, Mallards, Pelicans and many other species congregating on the Duck’s Head and flying back and forth over the StoneHouse. It’s a special time of year and I highly recommend a visit in early spring to experience fantastic fishing and bird watching. It will take you back to a time when, “The Land Belonged To God.”
