Birding in the Methow Valley

The Great Washington State Birding Trail: Cascade LoopThe Methow Valley offers some of the best bird-watching in the state. Over 250 species of birds have been seen in the area surrounding the Methow River and it’s tributaries. The Valley features many different habitats from wet forest to dry shrub-steppe and is home to birds of both western and eastern affinities.

Both Golden and Bald Eagles are seen here year-round, and the Valley is one of the best places in the country to see Lewis’ Woodpeckers. Gray Catbirds and Eastern Kingbirds are relatively easy to find and the birding is nearly always accompanied by good weather.
