The Magic Valley is a center of attention for bird watchers. The Snake River corridor running from the Massacre Rocks exit on Interstate 84 to Mountain Home offers visitors nearly 300 species of birds to view.
Waterfowl, shorebirds, songbirds, and wading birds are common along the Snake River Plain through the spring, summer and fall. Golden eagles are frequently seen along the canyon walls of the Snake River and bald eagles are winter visitors. Great Blue Heron can be seen patiently waiting for their next meal to swim within range.
Three hot spots near Twin Falls for the novice or seasoned birder are Niagara Springs, Hagerman and the Billingsley Creek Wildlife Management Areas (WMA). Each offers a different type of wildlife viewing opportunity. Birding enthusiasts CLICK here for more info!
