Welcome to Idaho Birds
A rich diversity of birding opportunities awaits those visiting or living in Idaho. Its scenic landscapes and unique geologic features, with large lakes and wild rivers, rugged soaring peaks, heavily timbered forests, and high desert seas of sagebrush interspersed with oasis for migrating and wintering birds, combine to make Idaho a highly desirable, and under appreciated, birding destination.
Whether you want to challenge yourself physically by climbing a mountain to find Rosy-finches, add those hard to find lifers to your list, park next to a marsh to view breeding plumage waterfowl, or just enjoy the bird life amidst natural beauty, Idaho has many possibilities to offer.
Within these pages you will find compilations of state listserv traffic, latest eBird sightings, links to Idaho’s birding Facebook groups, birding details and maps for destinations, species distribution maps- everything you need to plan your birding vacation or afternoon outing, and to stay in touch with what’s going on in Idaho birding. Idaho Birds is also home of the Idaho Bird Records Committee. All of this adds up to your one stop internet resource for comprehensive information on birding in Idaho.
