Libby is located along the Kootenai River in northwestern Montana. Birding around Libby can be quite good, since there is an excellent diversity of birdlife only a short distance from town. However, birding for waterfowl during migration months is not very good, and only the Kootenai River and Libby Dam are recommended. Libby is named for the daughter of George Davis, an early white settler in the area. The Kootenai Indians and white explorers such as David Thompson used the Kootenai River system quite extensively in the years before Montana became a state. Steamships eventually took over as the primary means of transportation on the river, only to be replaced by a series of forest roads. 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.
