Montana is home to over 400 bird species across an astonishing diversity of habitats.
Birding is one of the fastest growing recreational activities in the United States. Ask any birder and they will be able to tell you why: the enjoyment that comes from being outdoors, the satisfaction of learning about the natural world, and the pleasure of seeing an unexpected flash of color in the trees. Here we provide statewide information on where to see birds, how to find out what other birders are seeing, and more.
Montana Audubon recently launched its Montana eBird portal during our 19th annual Wings Across the Big Sky bird festival in Kalispell. On this webpage you can find a great deal of Montana-specific bird information on species, recent checklists and links to data collected by other eBirders across the state.
In addition, photos from local birders, sightings of uncommon or rare birds and Montana Audubon’s newsfeed can easily be accessed there. Make ebird.org/mt your homepage today!
Montana Audubon brings our fun annual gathering of birders, wildlife enthusiasts and conservationists to a different community each year.
