The Methow watershed with its rivers and mountains, shrub-steppe and forests, low-lands and alpine zones has some of the most diverse bird habitat of anywhere in Washington State. Over 250
species of birds live or migrate through this watershed and those birds range from big to small and from shorebirds to mountain dwellers.
Much of the best information about the birds that can be found throughout the Methow Valley and where to best see birds has been prepared by the Audubon Society. The Great Washington State Birding Trail is a superb source of information prepared by Audubon that covers birding all around the state . We’ve included information from that publication pertaining to the Methow Valley below. If you want to see (and print) the entire brochure of where to view birds along the Cascade Loop, click here.
