The Wenatchee Valley’s varied terrain provides habitat to more than 300 species of birds, providing some of the best bird watching in the state. From Saddle Rock’s shrub-steppe to the steep mountainsides of Burch and Badger mountains, birds abound. And where there’s water, there are birds. Hundreds of tributary streams and rivers flow around and through the Wenatchee Valley, making it ideal breeding grounds as well as a convenient layover for migrating birds.

Whether you enjoy the solitude of nature with just you, your binoculars and the birds, or prefer to join other birding enthusiasts in the annual Spring Bird Fest in Leavenworth, you’ll enjoy some of the best birding in the state.
