Montana is home to a large variety of bird species. In honor of Bird Day, here are some ways to celebrate. Bird Day is celebrated annually on May 4th.


Wherever you go in Montana, you are sure to see many different kinds of birds. If you're in or around Bozeman, chances are you'll see ducks, geese, sand hill cranes, hawks, bald eagles, bluebirds, crows, and a more magpies than you care to see. That's just to name a few. Depending on where you live in the Gallatin Valley, you might be able to see all of them from your front porch. According to Wikipedia, there are over 400 different species of birds in Montana.
