What does every community need? A store specializing in bird feeding and naturalist knowledge, of course. In Missoula, we have the Naturalist’s Mercantile, the ultimate nature geeks emporium. The store’s co-owner, Mat Seidensticker, talks with about the store, bird feeding, and his past work as an owl researcher.
My favorite portion of the conversation centered around the diminutive Flammulated Owl, the little enigma of the ponderosa pine forests of the West. Hopefully I can talk Mat into showing me the tricks of trade in finding these owls.
You can reach Mat and the Naturalist’s Mercantile at Facebook or call at (406) 544-0227
