Some consider the rivers in this area to be the “Epicenter of top-notch trout fishing.”  As much as people are drawn to Eastern Idaho for the fantastic fishing, people are also drawn here to visit Yellowstone National Park.

Many people have grown up watching […]

Birding 201

Last week I visited one of my favorite birding locations, Chester Wetlands just North of Saint Anthony, Idaho. While I was there I could hear Soras all over the place. I decided to sit down at a location that I thought I would be able to find one. Knowing the habitat of the Sora helped me […]

Birding 101

It has been about 5 years since I started bird watching, well “officially” anyways. Growing up outside of Rexburg, Idaho I remember having a bird feeder out our kitchen window.
