MONTANA: YELLOWSTONE-GLACIER LOOP

Great western birding and wildlife amidst the scenery of Big Sky country.

Our goal on this tour is to show you Montana--its bird life and wildlife, its mountains, its two fabulous national parks, and all the nooks and crannies of the plains/valley/mountain topography--as only a well-traveled Montanan knows them. We'll begin our adventure in Yellowstone. Here we'll search for the iconic birds of the park, Western Tanager, Williamson's Sapsucker, Trumpeter Swan, Harlequin Duck, Barrow's Goldeneye, and Peregrine Falcon, among others. And we won't forget the mammals--Grizzly, Black Bear, Gray Wolf, Coyote, Bison, Elk, Pronghorn, Bighorn Sheep, Mule and White-tailed deer--the list goes on. Naturally we'll also visit Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, as well as explore some special places dear to our hearts.

Glacier National Park, with its breathtaking mountain scenery, is often referred to as the Switzerland of the US. The birding includes such attractions as Townsend's and MacGillivray's warblers, Varied Thrush, White-tailed Ptarmigan, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Black and Vaux's swifts, and Dusky Grouse. Mountain Goats are the most obvious large mammal, though Hoary Marmot and Columbian Ground-Squirrel can also be found. Join us on this tour of Montana's great national parks. It's a trip not to be missed.
