Darby, Montana – July XX, 2012 – Triple Creek Ranch, Montana’s all-inclusive hideaway resort, has
announced its program of birding adventures geared toward serious
birdwatchers as well as casual nature lovers. 
The “100th Birday” quest, directed by Triple Creek Ranch’s on-staff nature guides, challenges participants to find 100
bird species in one day throughout Montana’s “Big Sky” country.  Participants explore western Montana’s
rivers, lakes, canyons, forests, ridges and mountain tops in search of the
birding century.  Guests can plan ahead
or sign up last minute, as Triple Creek Ranch’s guides are available at guests’
Over 400 bird species have been spotted in Montana and 246 have been
recorded in the Bitterroot Valley, Triple Creek Ranch’s home.  A typical birder’s outing could net anything
from swans and grebes to eagles and falcons or cranes and curlews to
hummingbirds and woodpeckers.  It is not
unusual to spot 20 or more species in the environs of the ranch’s lodge on any
given day.  In addition to birds, the
region abounds with elk, moose, wolves, bear and mountain lions as well as wild
flowers, lush forests and mountain vistas in every direction.
“Birday” outings are included with a reservation and scheduled
upon request.
