Triple Creek Ranch

100th Birday Quest

Are you up for the challenge?  For the serious birdwatcher and nature-lover, Triple Creek Ranch is offering an exclusive all-day event: A quest to find 100 species of birds in a day.  The expedition will begin on the ranch campus in the early morning then journey to the West Fork and our private 26,000 acre, CB Ranch.  This  adventure trail may loop to Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge, Ross's Hole or the Big Hole Valley.  Explore Western Montana's mountains, canyons, river-beds, wet-lands and open prairies and rise to the challenge of spotting 100 species of our feathered friends.  Accompanied by TCR's sharp-eyed nature guides and in vans providing a birds-eye view in all directions, you are sure to spot wildlife and vistas beyond belief in what the natives refer to as 'Big Sky' country.  The bird populations vary with the seasons and in Montana over 400 species have been sighted including your favorite passerines, raptors, owls, waterfowl and more, which migrate and inhabit Western North America.
