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, birding trips led by Montana Audubon, and more.
Montana Audubon launched its Montana eBird portal during the 19th annual Wings Across the Big Sky bird festival in Kalispell in June 2018. On this site you can access a great deal of Montana-specific bird information about species, recent checklists, local hotspots and links to data collected by thousands of other eBirders across the state.
In addition, photos from local birders, sightings of uncommon birds and Montana Audubon’s news feed can easily be found there. Montana eBird is seemlessly integrated into the popular and global eBird database.
