Keeping Common Birds Common

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks' bird conservation program is dedicated to conserving populations and habitats of all birds. Our mission is to 'keep common birds common' while also conserving sensitive or rare species. We use science to direct habitat conservation priorities, but work with landowners and managers to apply conservation in ways that are practical and sustainable for land stewards.

FWP is partnering with the Montana Bird Conservation Partnership, a group of state, federal, not-for-profit and private organizations that are dedicated to bird conservation in Montana. Through this partnership, we have an exciting opportunity to maintain working landscapes and positively affect bird populations and habitats throughout the state.
