Watching and photographing birds and wildlife is by far one of the favorite things to do on the ranch and in the surrounding forest wilderness areas. There is always something to discover and observe at Holland Peak Ranch. A herd of wild elk grazing in the field. A majestic bald eagle flying overhead. A family of white-tailed deer just outside your window. A newborn calf taking its first steps. Or the unmistakable calls of a flock of Sandhill Cranes flying overhead. There are few places where you'll find such an abundance of fish, waterfowl and wildlife in their natural habitat. In fact, Western Montana has a greater array of wildlife than anywhere else in the lower 48 states.
