More than 400 species of birds can be found right here in Idaho.
From forests to desert, grassland to canyon, river to lava fields, the habitats for birds in Idaho is abundant. Not all birds stay here year-round, but Idaho is vital for many migrants as they move between summer and winter grounds.
Some birds come here just to breed while others stay temporarily to take refuge from the harsher northern climates each winter.
