Ekalaka and Vicinity Professional Review and Guide

"Birding in the southeast corner of Montana can be exciting. However, travelers should bear in mind that the region is sparsely populated and there are few paved roads. General Information: Alzada, located in the extreme southwest corner of Montana, was once called Stoneville. Lou Stone originally operated a saloon at this settlement.

In 1885 the town was named Alzada, after a pioneer rancher’s wife by the name of Mrs. Alzada Sheldon. Ekalaka was named after an Indian girl, born on the Powder River and daughter of Eagle Man (an Oglala Sioux). She was the niece of Red Cloud and distant relative of Sitting Bull, and married the first white man to settle in this area. 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."
