With a combination of mountains, grasslands, and wetlands, Montana in summer offers a mouthwatering diversity of breeding birds. We will look for birds like Baird's Sparrow, Sprague's Pipit, Mountain Plover, Dusky Grouse, and Black Rosy-Finch. All this in a spectacular setting, with the endless grassy plains abutting the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Add in a visit to Yellowstone National Park with its abundant bison and other large mammals and you have the perfect summer birding trip to the American West.
