The Idaho Birding Trail has its northern trail-head in the marshes and cottonwood groves of Creston Valley where one can observe a host of birds from the Yellow Warbler to the Cedar Waxwing. The trail meanders through conifer mountains past glacial lakes and across the rolling Palouse Prairie to the Polluck-Little Salmon River where Idaho Home owners or visitors can observe the Belted Kingfisher or the White-headed Woodpecker in the trees.
East Central Region
The East Central Region of the Idaho Birding Trail begins at Deadwater Slough near North Fork. The trail explores the heart of Idaho with its stunning peaks and whitewater rivers. If one looks carefully he may spot a Bald Eagle in flight or find its massive nest in the tops of the trees. Deadwater Slough has prime riparian habitat where Idahoans can enjoy their bird-watching past time. This section of the trail travels through twenty-seven great birding sites, ending at Galena Pass near Stanley where one can search for the majestic Golden Eagle.

Idahoans in the Southeast Region of the trail have forty-seven different birding sites to choose from. It stretches from the Mackay Reservoir where one can observe waterfowl to Henry’s Lake Subloop where Red-tailed, Ferruginous and Swainson’s hawks can be observed.
