The town of Pablo and Pablo Reservoir were named for Michel Pablo, a Flathead Indian rancher who raised wild bison and was credited for saving the bison from extinction. While hunting the Milk River country years ago, a man by the name of Walking Coyote caught and brought back a few wild bison calves to the Flathead Valley. When Walking Coyote raised thirteen bison calves on his own, he sold them to Michel Pablo and Charles Allard. The wild bison eventually formed the nucleus of the herd that now roams the National Bison Range. Polson received its name from David Polson, a prominent stockman who lived in the Mission Valley. Polson Hill lies on an ancient glacial moraine created during the last ice age. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, and helpful general information.
